A man accused of firing a rifle at Delaware State Police troopers was shot and wounded during the confrontation. State Police said in a news release that 31-year-old Michael Bartie, 31, was taken to a hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound that wasn’t considered to be life-threatening. Troopers encountered Bartie at a Long Neck home on Friday night after his girlfriend called police to report that he had been consuming alcohol and was locked inside a bedroom with their 9-month-old child. Police say a trooper shot Bartie in his chest after he left the house, pointed the rifle toward troopers and fired two rounds. Nobody else was hurt.
