A Beltzhoover man released from prison two months ago was shot by police early Sunday after pointing a .45-caliber handgun at two officers, Pittsburgh police said.

A city police sergeant shot Jamaar Blakey, 22, in the ear and chest after Blakey pointed the semiautomatic weapon at the officer and another sergeant chasing him through Knoxville, city police Cmdr. Thomas Stangrecki said.
