FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of the Fairfield man shot and killed by police responding to a domestic violence call that sent a woman and three children to the hospital.

State police say 51-year-old Christopher Andrews was shot to death Tuesday by police officers he confronted in his driveway.

Police were called to his home at about 6 a.m.

Inside, police found the man’s wife and her three children, ages 12, 13 and 15, with numerous blunt-force trauma injuries and stab wounds.

All four were transported to hospitals. The wife was listed in critical condition at Bridgeport Hospital.

The officer who shot the man also was taken to a hospital for observation.

The circumstances of what may have led up to the attack remained under investigation.
