A trial date has been set for the Ogden man who was shot by a Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy in Pittsford earlier this year.

Vincenzo Zagari is facing charges including menacing a police officer, grand larceny and drug charges.

Prosecutors say Zagari stole a car in Spencerport then went to Pittsford Plaza and shoplifted from Wegmans. He’s also accused of trying to carjack a woman in the parking lot. After a short chase, police say he threatened a deputy with a hammer and two realistic looking BB guns. Zagari was shot in the chest and hand. He was in the hospital for about a month before being transferred to the Monroe County Jail.

His trial will begin on September 15.
