CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire attorney general’s office has identified a state trooper who shot at man at a park.

Trooper Michael Petrillo discharged his gun Saturday night after he responded to a burglar alarm at the skate house at White Park in Concord.

Police found Dylan Stahley, 22, of Windsor, in a nearby ball field. The attorney general’s office said Stahley was shot during a confrontation in which he appeared armed. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital. He was charged with burglary, reckless conduct and being a felon in possession of a firearm. The Concord Monitor reported that both his attorney and a county prosecutor expressed concern about his ongoing medical needs as a result of his injuries and his mental health.

Petrillo has been a state trooper for about six years.

The attorney general’s office said a report on whether the use of force was justified will be released once an investigation is completed.
