More details have emerged about the incident in which a man was killed FRIDAY morning in a shootout in the parking lot of CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA CHRISTIAN INSTITUTE Religion WTLR/STATE COLLEGE, PA.
BRIAN E. NIEMAN, 50, of POTTERSDALE, PA, was shot to death by FERGUSON TOWNSHIP police after he advanced towards them in his FORD Bronco, shooting at them with a shotgun, refusing orders to stop and ramming their cruisers while trying to run the officers over.
The CENTRE DAILY TIMES reports that NIEMAN's ex-wife said that he was bipolar and would become violent when off his medication; a local car dealer said he stopped there to ask for gas money and told them he wanted to get on the radio to broadcast a message about his life, and the dealer's son called the station to warn them. Nobody on the station staff was injured in the incident.
