DOVER, Del. (AP) - Dover Police say a man who was shot by an officer has been charged, and is continuing his recovery in a prison infirmary.

Officers say 21-year-old Terrance Fletcher has been charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a person prohibited. He was arraigned while at the hospital where he was taken after Friday’s shooting.

Authorities say Fletcher was shot in the thigh by an officer who saw Fletcher with a gun in his hand. Police say Fletcher ran from a Probation and Parole officer who tried to contact him.

Investigators say when Fletcher was hit, he threw a .38 caliber revolver, which was recovered by investigators at the scene.

Fletcher is being held at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $20,000 cash bond.
