Federal jury awards $350,000 to mother of young man shot by police officer in Bridgeport

The jury in New Haven concluded that the qualified immunity that regularly shields officers from liability in use of force cases did not apply to Detective Christopher Barona in the fatal, April 1, 2013 shooting of Bryan Stukes. To withhold immunity, jurors had to find that Barona knew he was acting outside the bounds of accepted police behavior.
