City explores police body cameras after teen shot by trooper

WEST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut mayor will explore the possibility of police body cameras after meeting with the family of a black teen shot by state police. The New Haven Register reports West Haven Mayor Nancy Rossi reiterated her support for the city's police to wear body cameras after 19-year-old Mubarak Soulemane was fatally shot by a state trooper in January. Officials say the teenager had carjacked a driver in Norwalk when Trooper Brian North fired seven shots through a closed window, killing the New Haven resident. Rossi says that she has always supported acquiring body cameras but the cost of storing the footage has proven to be prohibitive.
