TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson police say officers investigating an armed robbery shot and wounded a man during a confrontation.

Sgt. Pete Dugan says the man has wounds that aren’t life-threatening and that no officers were injured in the Wednesday morning incident.

Dugan says the police responding to the robbery of a restaurant shot the man after finding him at an apartment complex.

According to Dugan, the man forced entry into an apartment and barricaded himself.

Two people inside the apartment escaped through a window with the help of police and the man eventually surrendered.

The incident occurred near South Campbell Avenue and East Irvington Road.

The man’s identity wasn’t released.
