Lee shooting investigation could take a couple of weeks
LEE - Circumstances that caused officers to shoot a local man near his home early Monday morning may not be known until the new year.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Susan Morrell said she expects investigators from the AG's office and the State Police Major Crime Unit to take "a couple of weeks" before producing an official report.
She added further information will be released when the investigation is complete. It is standard procedure for state officials to investigate an incident where police use deadly force, according to Morrell.
Area police responded to 289 Lee Hook Road after the man's wife, Mary, reported that her husband, Steve Amazeen, 45 discharged a weapon in their home and was possibly suicidal just after midnight.
After being shot by police, Amazeen was transported to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover, where he underwent surgery. Amazeen's wife, and their daughter, were not injured during the incident.
As of Tuesday, Amazeen remains in good condition at Wentworth-Douglass, according to spokeswoman Noreen Biehl.
She said Monday that she could not comment on the type of weapon Amazeen fired or any specifics related to the shooting or any pertinent timeline. It remains unclear whether Amazeen will be charged in connection with the incident prior to the shooting, which is being investigated by Lee Police.
