Dozens at Wethersfield Town Hall address officer-involved shooting

Hartford

On Monday night, dozens of people from around the state filed into Wethersfield Town Hall.

They are upset at the officer-involved shooting that happened on the Silas Deane Highway last month.

Dash cam video was released of Officer Layau Eulizier firing the shots that killed Anthony Jose Vega Cruz, also known as “Chulo,” to his loved ones. 

Vega Cruz was seen on the dash camera driving away from police in his car and then driving at the office or on foot before he was shot. 

People came in from all over the state, from New Haven to Bristol to Hartford, to send a message.

They will be there every step of the way as the town moves forward.

Cash Perez said she will be here until the investigation is over.

“I am looking for a change, and we are not out there marching only, we are here we are listening. We are active, and we are involved, and we are not going anywhere until justice is served,” she added.

While people spoke out at the town hall meeting, the council was there just to listen.

In Monday’s role, they were not allowed to answer any questions, and police officers, including the chief, sat by respectfully listening to what they said.
