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

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.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
