Tuesday, September 6, 2011
Police department Sergeant Andrew Pettit says officers responded to the call at about 3:30 Tuesday afternoon.  Officers found the man just south of 24th Street and Broadway.      
PETTIT: "When the officers arrived on scene, they contacted the suspect. He still had the bat in hand, swinging the bat back and forth. The officer told the suspect to put the bat down.  The suspect refused, came towards the officer and the officer fired at the suspect."
Pettit says the shooting is being investigated by multiple agencies, including the police department.  He was unable to say who the man was, why the officer did not deploy a taser, or how far away the suspect was from the officer when the officer fired.  
The officer who shot the man is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
