Two men died early Saturday after police officers fired weapons in two separate incidents involving drugs, according to the state police and the mayor.
One man was killed by a bullet, and the other died after being hit by a stun gun.
Mayor Michael Rohde said Saturday that Police Chief Jeffry Cossette told him the officers followed the proper procedures in unfortunate situations.
“There was a serious threat of danger to both the officers and other individuals,” Rohde said.
