State police say Goodale was wanted by police for violating his probation. The Mashantucket Pequot (PEE’-kwaht) Tribal police attempted to arrest Goodale in the parking garage, where police say Goodale pointed a firearm at officers.

State police say at least one officer discharged at least one round. Goodale then fell to the pavement below. It wasn’t clear whether he died from the shooting or the fall. No other injuries were reported.

The officers haven’t been identified.
