When officers arrived, they saw the man in the cul-de-sac with a gun. The man was shot during the encounter with officers, Jordan said.

Officers provided first aid until fire and rescue personnel arrived on the scene.

The man was transported to a hospital for treatment, where he remains in serious condition.
