A jury has ruled in favor of a former Shrewsbury police officer who sued after he was shot responding to a burglar alarm by a homeowner who thought he was an intruder. The jury awarded Stephen Rice more than $1.2 million Thursday after finding that Mark Ragsdale was negligent when he shot Rice in the abdomen during the early morning hours of July 14, 2006, and that negligence was a contributing cause of the officer’s injuries.
