WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have charged a 48-year-old man who was shot by an officer or officers in Waterloo after he took over a convenience store.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety said in a news release Tuesday that Joseph Manuele is charged with felony going armed with intent and with a misdemeanor weapons count. Court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.

The department says Manuele entered the store around 2:45 p.m. Sunday and ordered everyone out. Police soon surrounded the store. The department says that when Manuele came out, he fired his gun and officers returned fire.

He was taken to Allen Hospital and is expected to survive his injuries. No officers were injured.
