COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Police say they shot and wounded a man after he charged at them with a baseball bat in central Ohio.

Columbus police say the shooting occurred around 2:30 a.m. Monday as they were responding to a domestic violence report. Investigators say a dispatcher was speaking with a woman complaining that a man was hitting her.

The man wasn’t at the scene when police arrived. But they say he soon returned with a baseball bat and refused officers’ orders to drop it. Police say two officers fired at the 29-year-old man. He was reported in stable condition with multiple gunshot wounds.

Police say the man could face charges of assault and domestic violence.
