AMBRIDGE, Pa. (AP) - Police say two officers were hurt while responding to a domestic incident in a Pittsburgh suburb.

Police say they were called to an Ambridge home late Monday. Investigators say they were unsuccessful in separating several people.

Police say one officer suffered a back injury and another suffered an ankle injury while trying to resolve the situation. The officers were treated at a hospital and have been released.

Police Chief James Mann tells WTAE-TV multiple people were hit with stun guns and had to be pepper-sprayed after they jumped on the officers’ backs and refused to listen.

Mann says one person tried to pull a gun during his arrest.

Investigators say alcohol contributed to the situation.
