Following a police-involved shooting in Saturday, April 13 in the village of Ladyville, both a criminal and internal investigation is being carried out. Inspector Wilfredo Ferrufino says that police were responding to a burglary in progress when they met up with two men on a motorcycle. While trying to detain the suspects, they descended from their bikes in an attempt to flee before producing a firearm with which they fired at the officers. One of the officers, who has not yet been named, withdrew his firearm and returned a shot, injuring one of the men to his right leg. He has been identified as 31-year-old Shawn Lanza, who is under police guard at the hospital. The second suspect is being sought.
