Gwen Cordero during a press conference on Chapman Street in New Britain more than a year after five New Britain police officers shot and killed 20-year-old Zoe Dowdell last year, police were justified in this use of deadly force, according to a report released by the Fairfield State’s Attorney recently. Dowdell was fatally wounded while 15-year-old Caleb Tisdol and 18-year-old Noah Young were wounded. Young and Tisdol were later charged with committing robberies in New Britain. There were two guns in the vehicle when police fired, police said.
