On behalf of the members of the Penn Hills Police Department, our thoughts and prayers are with the officers of the Canonsburg Police Department as they cope with the tragic loss of Officer Scott Bashioum and the wounding of Officer James Saieva. Officer Bashioum was a seven year veteran of the department and previously served with the United States Air Force. He was fifty-two years old and is survived by his wife and children.
We offer our most heartfelt sympathies to both officers’ families and friends during this difficult time, and wish Officer Saieva a speedy recovery from his injuries. May peace be with everyone affected by this tragedy.
