Relatives of man shot by trooper disappointed by DA’s finding

The family of Wilfredo Justiniano Jr., a New Bedford man shot to death by a state trooper June 14, is “disappointed, but not surprised” by Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey’s finding that the shooting was legally justified, the relatives’ attorney said Friday. Ilyas J. Rona said in an e-mail that the trooper used “deadly force against a mentally ill man” and the district attorney’s conclusion that there was “no room for doubt” was “an unfortunately confident statement.” The e-mail asked the public to come forward with information, but in a telephone interview, Rona would not say whether the family is considering other action. Justiniano was shot after he had pulled over on Route 128 in Quincy and allegedly charged the trooper who responded to the scene.
