The family of a man killed by a Connecticut state trooper last year is calling on a prosecutor to finish the investigation that will determine whether the trooper will be criminally charged.
Trooper Brian North fired seven gunshots at Mubarak Soulemane as he sat in the driver's seat of car in West Haven after officers boxed him in to end a chase in January 2020.
Authorities said Soulemane had a knife, but relatives say he shouldn't have been killed.
Middlesex State's Attorney Michael Gailor says the report investigation will be released as soon as possible.
Last year, Soulemane's family filed a wrongful death suit against the state of Connecticut, the city of West Haven, and the West Haven police department for $10 million.

The Connecticut State Police Troopers involved in this incident were:
- Trooper Brian North, who has been with the State Police for 4 ½ years
- Trooper Joshua Jackson, who has been with the State Police for 4 ½ years
- Trooper First Class Ross Dalling, who has been with the State Police for 7 ½ years
Normally the State's Attorney office but in this case, the Division of Criminal Justice is investigating the police shooting.
