SYRACUSE, N.Y. - 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.
