District Attorney Awaiting Ballistic Testing Report In Osaze Osagie Investigation

The Centre County District Attorney’s office released an update Tuesday about the investigation into the death of Osaze Osagie, who was shot by a State College police officer last month.

Osagie died of multiple gunshot wounds on March 20 after being shot by a State College officer during a confrontation at Osagie’s apartment on Old Boalsburg Road, where police had arrived to serve him with a mental health warrant.

District Attorney Bernie Cantorna now says ballistic testing has been completed by the Pennsylvania State Police Crime Lab, and his office is awaiting the reports from that testing to complete its own investigation and report.

Cantorna will complete his investigation once all information is received, and report the results to the individuals and families involved before reporting it to the public.

Once again, no timeline was included for the ballistics report or Cantorna’s own investigation.
