SHARON, Pa. (WKBN) – A 23 year old was killed in an officer-involved shooting in Sharon late Friday night.
It happened at a home in the 300-block of Tamplin Street around 11:50 p.m. State police said Sharon Police responded to a domestic assault at the home.
Details are not provided.
However, state police said during the investigation, an officer-involved shooting resulted in the death of 23-year-old Sean Marie Hake.
The investigation is ongoing.
According to Pennsylvania’s open court records, Hake had a few run-ins with police before.
Charges include two different arrests in Mercer County for a violation of order — the most recent in March 2016.
Friends of Hake said the 23 year old had been in the process of transitioning to a male and wanted to be known as Sean Ryan.
“He had a genuinely good heart and he had struggled with his problems,” a friend told WKBN. “But he always made sure that he was there for other people.”
Sharon Police Chief Gerry Smith confirmed that the officer who shot Hake during the domestic violence call has been placed on paid administrative leave per department policy until the investigation is finished.
