The state Bureau of Investigation tells news outlets in a Wednesday statement that 27-year-old Andrew Joseph Allen was treated at a hospital and released after a Gwinnett County police officer shot him. No officers were injured.
Police said in a statement the man who the bureau is identifying as Allen was shot Tuesday night. Police say their gang unit was investigating at a home when officers heard yelling and a gunshot at another property and found Allen arguing with a resident.
Both the bureau and the police department say Allen pointed a handgun at the officers. It is unclear if Allen has a lawyer who could comment.
