HARRISON CITY, Pa. (AP) - Police say an officer wasn’t hurt when a bullet fired through a wall pierced his uniform while authorities were responding to a domestic dispute between a man and woman in western Pennsylvania.

Penn Township Police Chief John Otto tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (http://bit.ly/2bTSOmG ) the gunfire broke out just after 7:15 p.m. Wednesday as officers were knocking on the front door of a home. He says a man inside fired a shot that went through an exterior wall and pierced the officer’s uniform, but didn’t hit him.

The man has been taken into custody and is expected to be charged. Authorities didn’t immediately identify the suspect.
