Prosecutor: Man Shot After Charging Police With Hatchet
(AP) -- Authorities say a central New York man who charged police officers with a hatchet was shot.
Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick says officers were called to a Syracuse home Tuesday evening.
They found a 22-year-old man in a third-floor bedroom holding what appeared to be a hatchet.
Police tried to talk the man down until an officer attempted to subdue him with a stun gun.
The man got up and charged the officers, who responded by opening fire.
The man was critically wounded but is expected to survive.
