    Suspect wounded

    in police shooting

    WINOOSKI — A Vermont man who was shot in the thigh by a Winooski police officer after a confrontation has pleaded innocent to related charges.

    A judge Friday said Isaac Sage, 35, of Winooski should undergo a mental health evaluation to determine his sanity at the time of the incident and whether he is mentally competent for court proceedings.

    The Burlington Free Press reported that Sage has been treated and released from the hospital.

    Vermont State Police said two officers were responding to a trespassing complaint Thursday afternoon when Sage resisted arrest and punched an officer in the face, causing a concussion and broken nose.

    Police said an officer used a stun gun, but when it failed to subdue Sage, one of the officers fired his gun.
