April 14, 2019

CANONSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say police shot and wounded a man during an early morning domestic violence call in western Pennsylvania.

Emergency officials in Washington County say officers in North Strabane Township were called to a home just before 2:30 a.m. Sunday on a report of a domestic assault.

Officers encountered 19-year-old Logan Macri of Canonsburg outside with a firearm. Police say he refused to comply with officers’ commands and they “were forced to fire their service weapons, striking Macri multiple times.”

He was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital by medical helicopter, and there was no immediate word on his condition. Emergency officials say a woman was also taken to a hospital for treatment, but her condition wasn’t immediately available. State police are investigating what they are classifying an aggravated assault case.
