DA ID's man killed by police

Investigators have identified the man who was shot and killed by a police officer during a struggle in Bucks County.

District Attorney David Heckler says Michael Marino Jr., 26, was killed Saturday afternoon in Sellersville.

Neighbors say they saw Marino screaming and acting strangely.

Police were called and three officers later found him in an abandoned building.

They tried to help him but Marino allegedly assaulted one of the officers, police said. That officer then shot Marino.

There's still no word if Marino was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The officer involved in the shooting is on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.
