Charges pending in Pitcher shootout

NORWICH – The Chenango County District Attorney’s Office has issued a warrant for the arrest of a Norwich man shot by sheriff’s deputies following a stand-off in Pitcher that involved a group of innocent bystanders and the man’s nine-year-old son.



Patrick W. Ford II, 42, remains in serious condition following surgery at the Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse.
