The Cumberland Times News reports an Ohio man was shot by Pennsylvania State Police troopers Monday when they responded to a domestic incident at a residence in the 500 block of Pitt Street. Police said James R. Best, 45, of Canal Fulton, Ohio, brandished a knife and failed to obey commands when troopers entered the apartment complex.

Best was treated at the scene by police following the 4:42 p.m. incident, then transported by ambulance to a medical facility.

Two troopers have been placed on administrative leave, which is department policy.

The case remains under investigation by the state police Troop G Major Case Team.
