BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (AP) - Police in western Pennsylvania shot a man after he held another man at gunpoint and pointed the gun at responding officers.

Beaver County District Attorney David Lozier says Kevin Haskins entered a Beaver Falls home Wednesday afternoon and tried to forcefully take something. Nine people were inside the home, including six children.

Authorities say Haskins pointed the gun at three responding officers and pulled the trigger. The gun never went off. Two officers then shot him in the hip and legs.

The 24-year-old has been airlifted to a hospital for surgery. His condition isn’t immediately known.

No one else was hurt.

Haskins faces charges including attempted homicide and aggravated assault. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.
