The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is investigating an incident in New Philadelphia this past week, in which a New Philadelphia police officer reportedly shot a 32-year-old man who was armed with a hatchet. The incident happened on Thursday around 5:00 PM in the 500 block of North Broadway Street. Police were responding to a call of a man who was allegedly making threats, along with locking his mother out of her own apartment. Authorities say that the man was warned to drop his hatchet when confronted by police, but was shot when he continued to approach the officers with the weapon. The suspect was later taken to the hospital by helicopter, where his condition is unknown.
