02 - 29 - 2012 Details emerge dispelling rumors surrounding Kanagy shooting
(LS) As state police continue their "thorough, unbiased investigation" into the shooting of 39-y/o Leroy Kanagy of Lewistown by a Lewistown Police officer, the rumor that he was not alone in his vehicle during the shooting was not verified. Police did say a search warrant was released for Kanagy's vehicle but they did not disclose the details of that search. Kanagy was shot during a confrontation with police last week when he aggressively resisted arrest & came after officers. As more evidence & interviews are collected, the officer who fired the shots remains on administrative leave. Mifflin Co. DA, Dave Molek will also determine if that officer was justified in the use of deadly force.
