BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - Police say a Bay City officer has been shot was attempting to arrest a man.

Public Safety Director Michael Cecchini says the gunshot grazed the officer’s back and didn’t cause a life-threatening injury. The incident occurred shortly before noon Friday as Bay City officers were trying to serve an arrest warrant.

Cecchini says the 38-year-old gunman dashed into a house, leading to a standoff with police that stretched past 9 p.m.

Bay City Mayor Kathleen Newsham says the city is a safe place, despite the second shooting of an officer in the past year. The Bay City Times (https://bit.ly/1SFYzEb ) says Officer Brandon Murphy made a full recovery.

The mayor says police shootings are “such a rare occurrence.”
