At 10:13pm last night, PSLPD responded to the 100-Blk of NW Curry St in reference to a 54-year-old man armed with a gun experiencing a mental health crisis. A family member attempted to intervene and during the struggle, the firearm was discharged, inadvertently striking a 70-year-old family member in the arm. A family member called 911 while driving the gunshot victim to the hospital, where he was later released with non-life threatening injuries.

The 54-year-old man who was possibly armed, two adult family members and two young children were reported to still be inside the house.
