Why is Lamont silent about a killing by one of his state troopers?

On Jan. 15, 2020, State Trooper Brian North ended the life of Mubarak Soulemane by shooting him through a car window seven times. The car Soulemane was in was stopped and surrounded by state trooper and local police cars. All the windows were up. Yet in less than a minute Soulemane had been shot dead. To date Gov. Ned Lamont has said nothing about this killing by a state police officer.
