RAWLINGS, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say a Rawlings man was shot and wounded by troopers after wounding his brother and firing at his father.

State Police say the brother was grazed in the leg and Samuel E. George, 53, was shot after repeatedly refusing to put down a .22-caliber revolver Thursday night.

State Police say two troopers fired at George with 12-gauge shotguns and the Allegany County man was treated by a paramedic who had responded to the scene. The troopers were not injured.

Authorities say George’s brother, Jason George, refused treatment. George’s father was not struck. State Police say charges are pending against George, who was later transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for treatment.
