Norwich Officer Back in Hospital

Jonathan Ley was readmitted to Yale-New Haven Hospital on Sunday.

A Norwich police officer shot several times during a standoff is back in the hospital.

Officer Jonathan Ley was readmitted to Yale-New Haven Hospital Sunday, according to a spokesperson for the hospital. Ley was listed in good condition Monday afternoon, but it was not clear why Ley had returned to the hospital.

Ley was shot during a standoff with a man who had threatened to commit suicide-by-cop. Norwich police surrounded the Cedar Glen apartment complex Jan. 7 where Jason Razzino, 30, lived with his girlfriend. Razzino fired at officers, hitting Ley four or five times. Razzino killed himself after keeping police at bay for several hours.

Ley was rushed to the ICU at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He spent three days in the hospital and was released on Thursday in front of dozens of police officers who came to show their support.

A spokesperson for Yale-New Haven Hospital said he did not believe Ley's readmission was for anything life-threatening.
