When the three Baldwin officers and a Whitehall officer arrived at the home, Miller went to the door and ordered the man to put his hands up. He had a milk jug in one hand while his other hand was behind the door.

Moffatt said the man tried to close the door and one of the Baldwin officers fired two shots, one striking Miller just below his bulletproof vest.

The other Baldwin officer then fired a shot that hit the house.

“The officer behind him fired his weapon twice. There was another officer farther away from the house. He hears the shots, sees the officer down, levels his weapon and fires once striking the outside of the house,” said Allegheny County police Supt. Charles Moffatt.

Miller was transported to Mercy Hospital where he was taken into surgery. Miller was listed in stable condition Monday after undergoing his third surgery since the shooting.

“He has a shattered pelvis, shattered hip and possible nerve damage,” Baldwin Police Chief Michael Scott said.

Police said the man inside of the home was not armed and had tossed his rifle out of a window into the yard. His name has not been released.
