NOW, WHAT WE’RE JUST LEARNING, THE OFFICER’S BULLET-PROOF VEST APPARENTLY SAVED HIM. THIS IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. PITTSBURGH’S ACTION NEWS 4 REPORTER KATELYN SYKES WAS THERE. WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED? OFFICIALS ON SCENE TELL ME THE BULLET-PROOF VEST AGAIN, SAVED THAT OFFICER’S LIFE, DID NOT LEAVE BEHIND A BULLET WOUND, WHICH IS A GOOD THING, HOWEVER, THAT OFFICER HAS STILL BEEN TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL THIS MORNING AND THEY HAVE NOT GIVEN US ANY WORD ON HIS CONDITION OR HIS IDENTITY AT THIS TIME, BUT WE KNOW THAT IT’S A HARMONY TOWNSHIP POLICE OFFICER THAT WAS HURT. IF YOU TAKE A LOOK BEHIND ME, YOU CAN STILL SEE THE VERY, VERY ACTIVE SCENE HERE. YOU CAN SEE THE POLICE TAPED DOWN THE ROAD.
