Man brandishes gun; MPD officers shoot in self-defense last night near Colorado & Missouri Aves.

From MPD 4D Commander Kimberly Chisley Missouri:

Units were investigating a man with a gun call near Missouri Ave and Colorado Ave NW around 10pm. An adult male was located brandishing a shotgun and pointed the weapon in the direction of officers. The officers discharged their service firearms striking the male. The male was transported to an area hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury and is being charged with assault. The officers were not injured. The 5800 blk of 13th St NW and the 1200. Blk of Missouri Ave are temporarily closed to vehicular traffic as the investigation continues.
