BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Police in Boise say officers shot and injured a man who displayed a firearm and refused police commands.

The Boise Police Department said early Tuesday that officers responded at about 11:30 p.m. Monday to a business following a report of individuals creating a problem.

Police say a man ran and refused commands to stop and a foot pursuit took place.

Police say officers confronted the man and fired their weapons when he refused police commands.

Later Tuesday police identified the suspect as 22-year-old Dakota Morris. Police say he’ll be booked into jail when he’s released from the hospital.

Police also identified the Boise officers involved as M. Plaisted, V. Moreno, and T. Schneider.

Police are also looking for a person of interest identified as 20-year-old Dallis Morris, who police say fled the scene.

The Ada County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation.
