    Norwalk Officer Killed; Search Underway For Suspect

    03/21/2008

    Norwalk (WTNH) _ Police are searching for a person wanted for killing an officer early this morning.

    It happened around 2:30 this morning. There are several streets blocked off right now in the area of Lubrano Place. Police armed with shotguns and canine units are walking the streets in the area of Lexington Ave and Eli Ave.

    The State Police Major Crimes Squad is on the scene. The name of the officer has also not been released. We are told he is not a rookie officer, but no other information was available.

    We don't have any information yet on how it happened and what led up to the shooting.

    My prayers are going out for the Officer and his family. I hope they find the body of the POS that did this, and that he died a slow, painful death.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Norwalk officer killed; Search for gunman continues

    Updated 11:35 AM


    Norwalk (WTNH) _ Norwalk police are investigating the shooting death of a 11-year veteran, the first in the 26 years.
    Officer Matthew Morelli, 38, was investigating 'suspicious activity' around 12:30 a.m. in a rear parking lot off Lubrano Place.
    "He was patrolling the area, and in fact noticed suspicious activity, and stepped out to investigate what was happening," said Lt. Paul Resnick, who had a black ribbon over his badge.
    Shots were fired as Morelli stepped out of his police cruiser. He was working alone and died at the scene. No arrests have been made.
    "The death is the first fatality in the line of duty in the Norwalk police department in 26 years, and the fifth in the department's 94-year history, Resnick said.
    Mayor Richard Moccia calls this, "My toughest days as mayor of this city. This type of loss is never easy to fathom."
    Police armed with shotguns and canine units are walking the streets in the area of Lexington Ave. and Ely Ave. looking for clues.
    The state police Major Crimes Squad is on the scene, which is a few blocks away from Norwalk police headquarters. Police from surrounding communities including New York have been called in to help in the investigation and to cover regular patrol areas.
    Several weapons, including the officer's gun, were recovered from the parking lot.
    "We don't know whether he's still armed at this point," Lt. Resnick said. "I don't think the public is at tremendous risk."
    Morelli was a former Marine who served until 1996. He was hired that same year by the Norwalk Police Department.
    In a press conference this morning, Chief Harry Rilling said that Morelli "served with pride and distinction."
    The last officer killed was Officer Marco Carias on March 20, 1982.

    RIP Officer Morelli............

    Your tour is over and you now serve with St Michael. Thank you for your service and dedication. Prayers for your family and friends.

    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
