An investigation is underway after an officer-involved shooting in Fairfield County.

The incident happened around 7:35 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5 during an attempt to serve a felony warrant for domestic charges in Stratford at the intersection of Route 110 and Main Street Putney.

The suspect was observed entering a vehicle at which time Stratford Police officers attempted a traffic stop where force was used, Stratford PD Captain Frank Eannotti said.

The suspect was injured and transported to an area hospital.

It was confirmed that a firearm was discovered on-scene, said Eannotti.

The officers involved were wearing body-worn cameras.
