According to the Bureau of Independent Investigators, a 911 call was made at 1:45 p.m., reporting a fight between several people and that firearms were involved.
Two police officers arrived at the scene, where they met a witness who told them an armed man was in an alley.
The police fired at the man in the alleyway, hitting him at least once.
The man was taken to hospital, but the BEI said his life is not in danger.
