Man shot by Vt. cop faces charges

Posted: Updated:
BENNINGTON, Vt. - A man shot by a Bennington police officer is now facing charges.

The court issued an arrest warrant for Gregory Filo, 42, of Bennington. Filo is still in the hospital in intensive care after being shot by an officer in the lobby of the police station. Authorities say Filo showed a knife and they thought he had already stabbed a friend who was with him. Police say they repeatedly asked Filo to drop the knife, but he ignored them.

Filo now faces two felony counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The officer's name has not been released.
