Authorities release 911 calls from Litchfield law firm shooting – NBC Connecticut
“A man just attacked me and I…I shot him,” Robert Fisher said in a 911 call in June 2021.
During the call, he said he shot a man who assaulted him. Police later identified the man as 39-year-old Matthew Bromley.
“A man followed me down the aisle. He opened my door, kicked me, punched me in the face and said he was going to kill me and it all happened pretty quickly,” Fischer explained on the call.
Fisher also alerted Bromley State Police.
“He’s lying on his back on the sidewalk bleeding, I shot him in the head,” Fishcer said.
Last month, Fisher turned himself in to police after being charged with manslaughter in connection with the shooting.
During the 911 call, Fisher told the dispatcher that Bromley was making threatening remarks.
“After he hit me several times, I got out of my car and he didn’t back down. He told me he was going to kill me. I was going to burn in hell,” Fisher said.
In a statement, Fischer said he grabbed his gun hoping Bromley would back down, but he told police: “He immediately charged [at] me again. After a brief struggle with the gun, I shot him.
According to police documents, witnesses saw it differently. One said Bromley was backing up and another said they saw no problem when Fisher got out of the car.
NBC Connecticut contacted Fisher’s attorney who said his office was reviewing all the evidence, which he said was consistent with his client’s innocence.
Fisher’s next court date is scheduled for July 8.
