COATESVILLE A Coatesville man will be charged with attempted homicide after shooting at two police officers early Saturday, according to the Chester County District Attorney's Office.
The officers, who returned shots and struck the man, were not wounded. The District Attorney's Office has determined the officers were justified in shooting 32-year-old Andre Fiorentino.
Officers said they saw Fiorentino, known as "Needles," looking in windows of parked cars on the 700 block of Merchant Street around 1 a.m. Saturday. When they approached and asked him for identification, he reached toward his waistband, "raising the suspicion that he was reaching for a gun," District Attorney Tom Hogan said in statement issued Sunday.
