News for Immediate Release

 

November 21, 2017

 

Pennsylvania State Police, Troop C, Major Case Team investigating an officer involved shooting.

 

Johnsonburg, PA – The Pennsylvania State Police, Troop C, Major Case Team, in conjunction with the Elk County District Attorneys’ Office, is currently investigating an officer involved shooting which occurred inside the confines of the Borough of Johnsonburg, PA.

 

Shortly after midnight on November 21, 2017, a uniformed police officer employed by the Johnsonburg Borough Police Department, encountered a 30 year old male along the 100 block of West Center Street, Johnsonburg, PA 15845, pursuant to a warrant. The subject physically resisted the veteran officers’ attempt to take him into custody and fought the officer for several minutes. The officer was unable to gain control of suspect and the fight escalated to a level where the officer fired one round from his sidearm, striking the subject.

 

Responding back up police officers from the Ridgway Borough Police Department, the Saint Marys’ City Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police Ridgway Station arrived at scene, detained the suspect and provided him medical care until emergency medical services could assume treatment.

 

The suspect was treated locally for a gunshot wound to the torso and subsequently transferred to a trauma hospital, where he remains in stable condition. Accordingly, no danger exists to the public. The involved officer has been place on administrative leave, pending the investigation, per Johnsonburg Borough Police Department policy.

 

The Elk County District Attorney will review all facets of the state police investigation into the shooting to determine if the use of force was justified in this case and the appropriateness of filing any charges.

 

The investigation continues.
