SEATTLE (AP) - Authorities say a Seattle police officer shot a 20-year-old man at the scene of a reported burglary early Sunday.

Police told The Seattle Times (https://is.gd/LShuch ) that neighbors called 911 around 1:30 a.m. to report seeing several people with flashlights and crowbars entering a house.

After surrounding the home, officers arrested two men. A third man ignored commands from an officer, jumped from the roof and started fighting with that officer. During the struggle, the officer fired his weapon, hitting the suspect.

Police say both the officer and the man who was shot were taken to Harborview Medical Center, where the man was reported in serious condition.

The officer had minor injuries and was released from the hospital.

The two other men were booked into King County Jail for investigation of residential burglary.
