The man was said to have been throwing rocks at the mother of his children when officers responded, CNN reports. Authorities were able to move the woman away, "but the individual came toward [the officer] again, and so he discharged his weapon a number of times," Assistant Police Chief Random Blankenbaker told reporters.

The man was hit multiple times and was taken to a hospital. Neither the identity of the victim nor his current condition was released.
