A man was fatally shot by a Connecticut state trooper after allegedly stabbing multiple people aboard a bus from NYC last night. Local police tell NBC that the suspect was armed with a "cutting instrument," and stabbed a man, a woman, and himself aboard the bus around 10 p.m.

The driver of the bus, which was headed from Chinatown to a Connecticut casino, pulled off of I-95 north and into a construction zone near exit 14 and flagged down a trooper who was working at the site. The trooper ordered the suspect to put the weapon down, but the suspect "began to be aggressive toward the trooper" and refused his order, according to Lt. J. Paul Vance.

The trooper fatally shot the suspect, and accidentally wounded another passenger who was attempting to subdue the man. That passenger suffered a non-fatal wound to the leg; the other two injured passengers were taken to Norwalk Hospital in stable condition.

I-95 was closed between exits 13-15 throughout the night, but is now reopen. The identity of the suspect has not been released, and the investigation is ongoing.
