Clairton police Officer James Kuzak Jr., who was paralyzed from the waist down in 2011 in the line of duty, took the stand Monday in the trial of two men accused of shooting him during a violent home invasion.

Kuzak, 40, of Belle Vernon, testified he knew what happened as soon as he was shot.

“I knew in my mind I was paralyzed,” said Kuzak, who had 18 years of law enforcement experience at the time of shooting but just three weeks on the force in Clairton.
