KARTHAUS – A Karthaus man is behind bars following an approximately 12-hour police standoff on Christmas Eve.
Shannon D. Quick, 46, is charged by Pennsylvania State Police with criminal attempt-murder of a law enforcement officer of the first-degree and criminal attempt-criminal homicide. He’s also charged with misdemeanor terroristic threats, simple assault and harassment.
According to the affidavits of probable cause, at approximately 1:30 p.m. Dec. 24, a female victim reported that Quick had threatened to pound her face in. She said he’d also threatened to shoot her within the past few days, and she hadn’t slept for four days because she feared for her life.
At approximately 10:26 p.m., a PSP Special Emergency Response Team responded to the 100 block of Potter Street in an attempt to take Quick into custody on active warrants.
Troopers utilized a PA system to announce their presence, and Quick allegedly threatened to kill SERT members several times while speaking with negotiators on the phone.
Troopers advised Quick of their intent to fire a bean bag through a window and ordered him to vacate the residence. When the bean bag was fired, Quick allegedly fired a round from a firearm, which struck the ground in front of four troopers.
Quick is currently scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing during centralized court Dec. 30. He’s incarcerated in Clearfield County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.
