PITTSBURGH — Authorities say a man who was shot by Pittsburgh police after they said he pointed two guns at officers is expected to survive and will face aggravated assault and other charges.
Officers were called to the East Hills neighborhood after indications of shots fired shortly before 1:30 a.m. Thursday and saw a man in the street with a shotgun and a handgun. Police said he refused to drop the weapons and was shot by officers, who were uninjured.
Twenty-seven-year-old Eric Farrar was taken to a hospital in critical condition but was later listed as stable. The Homewood neighborhood resident was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, reckless endangering, weapons violations and drug possession.
Court documents don’t list an attorney who could respond to the charges.
