Connecticut State Police are investigating a fatal shooting in a parking lot of a law office in Litchfield.

Officials said a man was shot shortly before 5 p.m. on West Street, also known as Route 202. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man with a gunshot wound. He was later pronounced dead, according to police.

State police identified the victim as 39-year-old Matthew Bromley and said he died of a gunshot wound to the head.

One of the individuals involved in the shooting incident is associated with the nearby law office, Cramer & Anderson.

Police said they have identified the alleged shooter, who they said called to report the shooting. They said the person is cooperating with law enforcement officers but is not under arrest.

Officials believe that the two people involved in the shooting knew each other, but their exact relationship is unknown at this time.

The alleged shooter is a legal and licensed gun carrier, according to police.

Detectives are working to determine a motive. They said the incident appears to be isolated and there is no threat to the public.

Cramer & Anderson said in a statement on their website that the firm is cooperating with the investigation.

A second statement from the law firm said Bromely was not a client and they had no record of him being an adversarial party to the firm.
