Shooting in Towamencin Justified
Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman has ruled that off duty Hatfield Township Police Lieutenant Eric Schmitz was justified in the use of deadly force against his 17-year-old son last month. Investigators say the youth tried to stab his father with a hunting knife. The weapon had a five inch blade. The shooting occurred just a day after the youth was released from the Horsham Clinic where he was being held involuntarily after threatening to kill himself.
