(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.

Authorities charged Crowley with multiple felonies. You can read a full list of the charges by clicking here.

In a news release, Korchak said it was determined that the deputy acted lawfully after a "thorough review of police reports witness statements and body camera footage."

Korchak said he could not discuss more details due to the charges that are pending against Crowley.
