A weekend domestic incident ended with an unnamed 55-year-old man shot to death by state police. It all began around 2:30 Sunday afternoon when police were called to the 900 block of Berger Road in Williams Township for reports of a woman screaming. Gregory Ritter lives on the road and says he saw what was going on. "The man who lives over there was running around naked. He was asking crazy," Ritter says. He says the man knocked on his door shortly before the shooting and asked Ritter to help him rape the man's wife. When state police showed up, the man was acting erratically and a stun gun was used to try to subdue him. When that didn't work and when the man continued to act in an aggressive manner, a trooper shot and killed him. The investigation continues.
