CLIFTON PARK - State police have now charged the shooting victim, 43-year-old Douglas Stewart III with menacing a police officer in the police involved shooting in Clifton Park earlier this month.

Stewart was shot by troopers following a domestic dispute on Aug. 6.

Police say he refused to drop his rifle, so troopers shot him twice.

He's now out of jail after posting a $50,000 bond.
