GREENSBURG, Pa. - A Washingon Township man who threatened to shoot at police officers Sunday was transported to a hospital after a two-hour standoff in a mobile home park.

Larry Wing, of Wellington Estates, was taken by ambulance to Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital, Greensburg, for evaluation yesterday evening, said Scott Slagle, Washington Township police chief.

Wing's mother summoned police shortly after 4 p.m. to report her son had taken a rifle or shotgun to a shed behind her residence and locked himself inside.
