NEW CASTLE — Four officers have been placed on leave while state police investigate their shooting of an armed man, ending a reported hostage standoff in Lawrence County.

New Castle police say Ivy Lanthier, 43, was shot early Friday when he emerged from his home carrying a shotgun and pistol and fired at police. Four officers returned fire.

Police Chief Bobby Salem says his officers and will be on leave until the state police investigate. It's routine for an outside agency to review officer-involved shootings.

No police were hurt but Lanthier was in critical condition at a Youngstown, Ohio, hospital.

Police went to Lanthier's house about 9:30 p.m. Thursday after he reportedly held a man at gunpoint, ordered his family to leave and fired guns into the ceiling.
