Stratford police responded to a request from Naugatuck police to serve an arrest warrant for Hagans on home invasion and strangulation charges. Hagan was believed to be armed and dangerous. As officers arrived at Hagan's home, they saw him drive off and followed his car with an unmarked police car until he stopped for a traffic light at Main Street Putney. Officers attempted a motor vehicle stop by pulling one police cruiser in front of Hagans' car, while the unmarked car remained behind him. The officers told Hagans to show his hands, and his car reportedly moved forward, hitting the police cruiser in front of him. Police fired multiple shots at the vehicle, and the car became stuck in the snow. Hagans got out of the car, and police shot and killed him.
