STAMFORD, Conn. -- A 25-year-old man was killed in a police-involved shooting in Stamford Monday night, according to Connecticut State Police.

Dylan Pape was killed near his residence on Wedgemere Road in Stamford shortly after 8 p.m. when an officer fired their weapon, state police said.

Members from the Stamford Police Department SWAT were called to the area of 119 Wedegmere Road at around 8 p.m. Monday on a report of a disturbance, state police said. State police said that during the course of the incident, at least one Stamford police officer fired their weapon, striking Pape at least one time.

Additional Stamford police officers and EMS arrived on scene and provided medical care to Pape. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, state police said.

Detectives from State Police Western District Major Crime responded to the scene shortly after 12:30 a.m. Tuesday at the request of the Stamford Police Department and the Stamford State Attorney's Office and assumed the investigation.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has been notified and will assist in the investigation, state police said. The OCME will conduct a post-mortem examination to determine the cause and manner of the death, state police said.

State police said the identification of the officer is pending notification to their family, and that the investigation is ongoing.

This is the second officer-involved shooting in Stamford this year. In January an officer fired his weapon at a suspect who police said had a fake gun on him. The suspect was not hit in that incident.
