A state trooper who fatally shot a New Haven man gets to decide whether his personnel file will be released to the public.

Trooper Brian North shot and killed Mubarak Soulemane after a chase in West Haven last month. He’s been assigned to desk duty since then.

A paralegal with the state Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection told the New Haven Register that troopers have to consent to the release of their information under a new collective bargaining agreement.

Davis Dunavin loves telling stories, whether on the radio or around the campfire. He started in Missouri and ended up in Connecticut, which, he'd like to point out, is the same geographic trajectory taken by Mark Twain.
