VESTAL (WBNG) -- Authorities identified the suspect in an officer-involved shooting on May 13 on the Vestal Parkway.
The Vestal Police Department says 29-year-old Colin Yurick of Michigan is accused of drawing a weapon on an officer and causing a three-hour long standoff with multiple law enforcement agencies.
When he was removed from his vehicle, a pellet pistol fell from his lap, authorities say.
Police say Yurick will be charged with menacing a police officer and criminal possession of a weapon in the 3rd degree.
The charges have not been filed due to Yurick being in the hospital recovering from two non-life threatening gunshot wounds.
Police say Yurick is accused of a "shooting incident" in Bethlehem, Pa. just three-hours earlier.
They say he shot at least three people with a pellet gun at a gas station. At least one of the victims required hospital treatment.
Vestal Police say authorities in Bethlehem did not identify Yurick as a suspect until five days after the incident in Vestal occurred.
Bethlehem Police have issued warrants for the following charges
- Three counts of aggravated assault
- Possession of an instrument of a crime with intent to use it criminally
- Three counts of simple assault
- Three counts of recklessly endangering another person
- Criminal mischief - damaging property
- Three counts of harassment
- Disorderly conduct
- Carry/discharge an air rifle in a public place
Vestal authorities say Yurick was arrested in Michigan in August 2019 for brandishing a pellet pistol.
They say they do not know why Yurick was in Vestal.
