UNIONTOWN, OH (WOIO) - Uniontown Sgt. David White was shot four times on a Sunday night in July as he responded to a domestic disturbance.
Sgt. White will be released from Summa Akron City Hospital on Monday.
The woman who called 911 told dispatchers, in part: "There's a domestic disturbance going on -- could you guys just send out a cop?"
The suspect who opened fire on White and another Uniontown officer, Ryan Probst, 28, was shot and killed when officers returned fire, police said. The disturbance was not the first at the home, and White had responded previously to incidents at the house.
Uniontown Police Chief Harold Britt said it's standard for the department to have two officers respond to domestic incidents, which is what happened Sunday night.
"(Domestic violence calls are) probably one of the most dangerous calls you can get, because either one (of the subjects involved), they can turn on you, that's why we always send two, that's the standard most departments use is to send two officers to every domestic," said Britt.
Police said Probst greeted officers with gunfire when they responded to the home. Both officers returned fire, killing Probst.
White, who'd been shot four times, was taken to Akron City Hospital.
