Use-of-force expert: Ligonier Valley police shooting 'probably should have been handled differently'

Robbie T. Saunders opens the front door of his home on Gravel Hill Road in Ligonier Township on July 2 as Ligonier Valley police officers approach in this still from a body camera video released by the department. Officers shot Saunders with a stun gun and a service weapon after he exited the home wielding a machete.

Two Ligonier Valley police officers placed themselves, perhaps unnecessarily, in a situation that required deadly force when they fatally shot a Ligonier Township man last month, according to two use-of-force experts.
