Summary"Granite City Police officers responded to a home at 2444 Delmar Saturday afternoon following a report of an injured woman. The victim, the 76-year-old mother of Noser, had suffered injuries after being beaten with a baseball bat. She suffered injuries to her head. Noser also attacked another family member, a 38-year-old male, with the same bat. He suffered injuries to his head and body. The victims indicate that Noser was extremely agitated prior to the incident. The 9-year-old son of the male victim was unharmed. The initial investigation has shown that when officers confronted Noser, who was armed with a knife, he repeatedly refused to drop his weapon as ordered by the officers and subsequently charged at an officer before being shot twice by police. All parties, who reside at the home on Delmar, are hospitalized at area hospitals and expected to survive. Per general protocol, the Illinois State Police is investigating the officer-involved shooting."
