Corrections Officer Allegedly Fires 18 Shots, Killing A Motorist In A Road Rage Incident. His Lawyer Claims It Was Self-defense.

Aiexpress – According to the Courant, an arrest warrant affidavit claims that Lucky and Scott Kracke, aged 49, confronted each other on the shoulder of eastbound I-691 in Meriden, Connecticut, after getting out of their vehicles.

According to the Courant, Lucky, who has been working as a state corrections officer since 2018, is accused of shooting Kracke at close range. A witness, who is a friend of Kracke’s, stated that Lucky then stood over him and proceeded to fire multiple shots in quick succession before leaving the scene.

On Tuesday, authorities arrested Lucky and charged them with the crime of murder.

According to NBC Connecticut, Lucky, who is currently being held on a $2.5 million bond, appeared in court on Wednesday. His lawyer stated that Lucky acted in self-defense to protect himself and his child.

According to lawyer Michael Hillis, individuals have the legal right to defend themselves if they feel their life is in danger. He also mentioned that the person in question had a baby in a car seat behind them, emphasizing his determination to protect his child from any potential harm. Hillis declared, “I’m going to safeguard my baby against anyone who intends to harm me.”


According to Hillis, Lucky has an impeccable record and has never been arrested before.

According to the affidavit for Lucky’s arrest, there are conflicting accounts of the confrontation that resulted in Kracke’s killing. The incident occurred just after 8 p.m.

The woman stated that Kracke then abruptly came in front of the other motorist and intentionally hit the brakes to provoke a reaction.

According to the mother of Lucky’s son, she stated to investigators that a white pickup truck almost collided with Lucky’s Honda Civic as it changed lanes. She also mentioned that Lucky honked his horn in response to the close call. Subsequently, the pickup truck pulled over in front of them.

According to reports, Lucky claimed that he drove away from the scene because his child was in the car and he feared that the other person involved in the incident would pursue him. However, when state police detectives arrived, he chose not to give an interview.

According to the Courant, Lucky, an employee at the New Haven Correctional Center, was suspended with pay on Friday and subsequently arrested on Tuesday.

According to an online obituary, Kracke, the owner of Scott’s Home Improvement company, was a single father who had raised his son, Logan, since the boy was 8 months old.

A fundraising campaign was initiated on GoFundMe to gather funds for Kracke’s funeral expenses and provide support to his 16-year-old son, who is currently residing with his grandmother.
