DENVER (AP) - An investigation is underway after police shot a man who officers say refused to put his gun down after threatening people in Lakewood.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/ivsM5p ) the man, whose name has not been released, is accused of wielding a gun as he chased people who were leaving a party at the Windsor Apartment complex Sunday night.

When police arrived, the man refused to leave an apartment without the gun. He eventually came outside with the gun and was shot.

Police spokesman Ty Countryman says the man was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
