State police shoot, wound man armed with shotgun at Wal-Mart

SHREWSBURY, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania State Police say a trooper has shot and wounded a man armed with a shotgun at a Wal-Mart.

State police received a call Thursday night from the Wal-Mart in Shrewsbury, saying the store about 40 miles south of the state capitol of Harrisburg had been robbed.

A trooper who was in the area responded and spotted the suspect as he was leaving the store.

Authorities say the trooper told the man to drop the shotgun. That’s when the man raised his weapon. State police say the trooper pushed the shotgun barrel away. The man fired, and simultaneously, the trooper shot his gun, hitting the man.

The York Daily Record (http://bit.ly/1XkxiG7 ) reports state police say it appears the man was trying to rob the pharmacy.
