According to reporting by WKBW, NYS Troopers were responding to a report of an incident of domestic violence in the Cattaraugus County village of Portville in the very early hours of New Years Day.

On Friday, while officers were discussing the incident with the alleged domestic violence victim to determine what had occured, the suspect approached them with a bow and arrow. The suspect, later identified as 40-year-old Ryan Ehman, was given commands to drop the weapon. When he refused to drop the bow and arrow, he was shot by the trooper.

Ehman was then arrested by State Police and subsequently flown to the Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo by Mercy Flight. There hasn't been any information released related to his current condition. State Police also have not released the name, or other details, of the Trooper who shot Ehman.
