Police fatally shoot 'drunk' 75-year-old Korean War vet John Valluzzo on Memorial Day weekend at his Connecticut mansion
State police identified the man killed Friday in Ridgefield as 75-year-old John Valluzzo.
Valluzzo was armed when Ridgefield police arrived at his posh, 9,000 square foot home following a call about a possible domestic incident on Friday evening, state police said. He was shot after authorities said he refused to comply with orders to put the gun down and instead raised it on officers.
