Ashtabula Officer On Paid Leave After Shooting

ASHTABULA (AP) - An Ashtabula man is in the hospital after he was shot by police this morning.   

Ashtabula Police were called to the home in the four-hundred block of West 38th Street after a woman told dispatchers that she was being held at gunpoint by an intruder.  

Three officers responded encountering two men in a struggle inside the home.  

One of the two was allegedly shot when he refused to drop his gun.   

Doctors have not said what the homeowner's condition is, but, WKYC TV reports he was transported via helicopter to Cleveland's MetroHealth Medical Center, as well as the suspected intruder.  He was injured prior to the authorities arrival.

The officer who shot the man is on paid administrative leave pending an investigation. He was not wearing a body camera when the incident occurred.
