Police: Man raises compound bow and arrow at Trooper

PORTER TWP., Pa. - Officers responded to a domestic altercation Thursday afternoon in Schuylkill County when a male subject exited the residence with a compound bow and arrow, rising it at a Pennsylvania State Trooper. 

The Trooper immediately fired his weapon and sought cover, according to the police report. 

A female exited the residence in the 100 block of North Yohe Street bleeding from her head. 

The 42-year-old male returned to the residence, but exited again and pulled back on his bow raising it toward the Trooper. The Trooper fired at the male subject and struck him in the leg. 

Officials secured the subject and his weapon and the Trooper provided first aid until EMS arrived.

The male subject was transported to Hershey Medical Center. 

The incident is under investigation.
