SHARPSVILLE, Pa. -- The fatal shooting of a Sharon man here early Saturday has been ruled as self-defense, according to a statement from Sharpsville police.

According to the police statement, Flynn was waving a gun and threatening the occupants of the residence.

McEwen "shot Mr. Flynn in self-defense and in defense of others present at the residence," the statement said.
