One man is dead and NINE police officers are injured as 'booby-trapped' Connecticut barn explodes during standoff with husband whose wife had called to report domestic violence
One man is dead after a fiery explosion rocked a Connecticut town while officers were negotiating with a man whose wife had called police to report domestic violence. Nine officers were being treated for injuries that are not life-threatening after the blast at a barn behind the couple's home in Quinnipiac Avenue in North Haven on Wednesday night. The remains of one unidentified person was found in a building at the home in North Haven on Thursday morning, State Police Trooper Kelly Grant said. The woman – who reportedly filed for divorce from her husband last month - called police at around 2.30pm on Wednesday. It led to police officers and a SWAT team descending on the property and working for several hours to coax the suspect, who had barricaded himelf in the home, to come outside. During the stand-off, the barn - which may have been rigged to blow with booby traps - exploded at around 8.30pm, sparking a massive fire that spread to the house and injuring the officers at the scene.
