By BBN Staff: Over the weekend Ladyville police were responding to a burglary in progress when officers encountered two men on a motorcycle.
When police attempted to detain them, they allegedly got off the bike and pointed a firearm at an officer.
That officer quickly fired at the armed assailant injuring him to the right leg.
He was later identified as Sean Lanza. He is currently guarded by police at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
This matter is currently before the police’s Professional Standards Branch where an update will be made available shortly.
According to police, the other suspect is yet to be detained.
