LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A Lewiston man shot by police last week after brandishing a gun is now facing criminal charges.

The Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/1rRytfI) reports that the 20-year-old Albert Crowley was charged Monday in the hospital with domestic violence assault and three counts of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon. Bail was set at $30,000 cash. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.

Crowley was shot Friday night after allegedly assaulting his 18-year-old girlfriend.

Officers caught up with the armed Crowley in a city park and three officers fired about a dozen shots, striking Crowley several times.

He remains in the hospital for injuries not considered life-threatening.

The three officers involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave pending the investigation, which is standard procedure in police-involved shootings.
