A Jersey Shore man is dead after he allegedly broke into a home, according to a joint press release by state police at Lamar and the Clinton County District Attorney’s Office.
Cody J. Englert, 30, forced entry into a home at about 1:50 a.m. Wednesday at 925 4th St. in Pine Creek Township, Clinton County. He was reportedly shot by a resident of the home and died at the scene. Police said in a release that the resident who shot Englert is cooperating with investigators.
Police were assisted at the scene by Lock Haven City and Pine Creek Township police, the Clinton County coroner and Jersey Shore EMS.
The investigation is ongoing, according to police who said that there is no threat to the public.
Authorities have not released further information.
Englert’s criminal history details minor offenses, including a 2011 incident in which police said he committed multiple counts of misdemeanor disorderly conduct for fighting, though the charges were later withdrawn. He was also charged with misdemeanor simple assault in 2009, but the count was withdrawn.
He pleaded guilty in separate incidents in 2011 for harassment and disorderly conduct for fighting, each summary offenses.
