DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Authorities on Friday were investigating a standoff that ended with a man shot by police.

The standoff began Thursday night and officials ordered residents in the area of Shady Retreat and Limekiln roads to shelter in place.

There was a police-involved shooting and one person was taken to a hospital for treatment, the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office said.

Video from WPVI-TV showed a medical team surrounded a shirtless man and placed him on a stretcher.

Authorities have not released the person’s name or medical condition.

“Any danger to the community presented by this situation has now passed, however police will remain in the area for some time in an investigative capacity,” the DA’s office said.

The shelter in place order was lifted.

The case was ongoing in accordance with policy in which county detectives investigate all police shootings, the DA’s office said.
