(WBNG) — Broome County District Attorney Michael A. Korchak said a Broome County Sheriff’s deputy was justified in an early July shooting of an armed suspect in the Town of Windsor.

45-year-old Jaime I. Crowley was shot after the Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of shots being fired at a vehicle on Cascade Valley Road around 11:15 p.m. on July 2.

Crowley was shot after he refused to comply with the orders of deputies. He was hit in the shoulder and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, the District Attorney’s Office said.
