TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - An armed robbery suspect was shot and wounded early Wednesday during a confrontation with a Toledo police officer, authorities said

The shooting occurred around 1 a.m., shortly after a man called 911 to report that a man armed with a handgun had just robbed him at a convenience store.

An officer who responded to the store soon saw a man who fit the suspect’s description running in a parking lot across the street. The officer then confronted the man there and soon fired multiple shots, striking the suspect at least once, authorities said.

It wasn’t clear where the suspect was shot or if he fired his weapons, authorities said. He was taken to a hospital, but his name and further details on his condition were not disclosed.

The officer, whose name was not released, was not injured. He was placed on administrative leave, as is standard policy following police-involved shootings.
