UPJ student shot during break-in

JOHNSTOWN — A student at Pitt-Johnstown was shot and wounded Sunday night when two men barged into his apartment and attempted to rob him and two other students in the Bloomfield Apartments in Richland Township.

The injured student, identified as 22-year-old David Consiglio of the Hollidaysburg area, was driven to Memorial Medical Center by friends for treatment.

Consiglio, who was shot once, underwent surgery Sunday night and remained in the hospital Monday recovering from the wound, police Detective Kevin Lehman said.

Consiglio was listed in fair condition Monday, a hospital spokesman said.

The student is a relative of Blair County District Attorney Richard Consiglio, who could not be reached Monday afternoon for comment.

Lehman said that the intruders and the three students in the room got into a scuffle before Consiglio was shot.

A number of students residing at the Bloomfield Apartments, which is located along Theatre Drive, as well as the victim have been interviewed in the ongoing investigation.

Police were still trying to put together a description of the two intruders, but were not ready to release any information Monday. Surveillance tapes were being reviewed, Lehman said.

Lehman said that the attempted robbery occurred as a large number of the students were studying for finals this week.
