Investigation continues in police shooting of former Canon-McMillan wrestling champ
Washington County District Attorney Eugene Vittone said no charges had been filed as of Monday in the police shooting of 19-year-old Logan B. Macri of Canonsburg, but a state police investigation is ongoing.
Macri, a 2018 Pennsylvania state high school wrestling champion for Canon-McMillan High School, was shot multiple times early Sunday following an alleged domestic assault at a home in North Strabane, according to state police.
Police from North Strabane and Canonsburg responded to a residence in the 400 block of West McMurray Road in North Strabane around 2:25 a.m. They found Macri outside the home brandishing a firearm, state police said.
“Macri refused to comply with officers’ commands and the officers were forced to fire their service weapons striking Macri multiple times,” said the report.
Macri was taken by helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital. An update on his condition was not available Monday.
Macri’s grandfather declined to comment. Attempts to reach other family members were unsuccessful.
All officers involved in the initial call are on administrative leave while state police investigate.
Macri, a 2018 Canon-McMillan graduate, was a four-time PIAA Class AAA qualifier who won his state championship in the 120-pound weight class. He was a WPIAL finalist three consecutive times, winning in 2018, and a three-time Section 4 champion.
Macri originally signed to wrestle at Tennessee-Chattanooga but after the coach there left for another job, he was released and signed with West Virginia. He was on the Mountaineers’ roster in the fall, but he did not participate in any matches. He is not currently listed on the WVU roster.
WVU Senior Associate Athletic Director Michael Fragale said Macri was at the school and on the roster in the fall, but he left school and the team in November for unknown reasons.
