Police: Officer shoots, injures 16-year-old boy who had gun

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Police say officers responding to a reported altercation at a home found a 16-year-old armed suspect, and one officer shot the teen.

A Columbus police statement says the teen was taken to a hospital in stable condition with injuries that weren't considered life threatening.

Police say officers responded to the home Monday on a report of an argument between two men, one of whom was reportedly armed with a gun. Authorities say officers heard an altercation inside when they arrived and opened the door to find the 16-year-old with a gun in his hand.

Police say one officer fired his gun, striking the suspect at least once. The statement says a gun was recovered at the scene.

No officers were injured.

The investigation is continuing.
