“We were fortunate none of our troopers were injured,” said State Police Tpr. Steve Limani. “It was very nice that we had that information prior to going into the residence that there was a possibility that he had some type of sharp instrument on him that alerted the troopers and they were able to take extra precaution when they were entering that residence.”

Gorinski is facing several charges including aggravated assault.
