Police: Former Canon-McMillan wrestler attacked mom with sword, gun

Logan B. Macri won a state wrestling championship in 2018 while at Canon-McMillan High School.

A champion Canon-McMillan wrestler attacked his mother with a sword and a handgun before police were called to his Canonsburg home and shot him as he pointed an AR-15 rifle at them, police said.

Police charged Logan Macri, 19, with 21 crimes Tuesday including six felonies as the teen recovered in a Pittsburgh hospital.

Macri’s mother called police to their home in the 400 block of West McMurray Road in North Strabane around 2:25 a.m. Sunday, according to a criminal complaint filed in the case. The mother advised police her son might be under the influence of drugs.

Three police officers, two from North Strabane and one from Canonsburg, responded and told Logan Macri to get on the ground. He initially complied with the officers’ commands, put up his hands and got down on his stomach in the driveway, according to the report.

While they were attempting to take him into custody, Macri suddenly stood up and pointed an AR 15 rifle at the approaching police officers, according to the complaint. All three officers shot, striking Macri several times, police said. Macri continued to fight, and police used a Taser on him.

The complaint also said Macri threatened to kill others and to burn down his home with intent to terrorize the police officers and his mother.

Washington County District Attorney Eugene A. Vittone II told the Trib there is police body cam footage of the incident.

Macri was taken by helicopter to an unnamed Pittsburgh hospital. He is in stable condition, state police said.

All of the officers involved in the initial call are on administrative leave while state police investigate.

Macri, a 2018 Canon-McMillan graduate, was a Pennsylvania state high school wrestling champion his senior year in the 120-pound weight class.
