Denver Police Detective John White says dispatchers received a call just before 1 a.m. about a suicidal man armed with a gun in the 3400 block of West Colfax Avenue.
When officers arrived, they became involved in an altercation with a man on scene, and at least one officer fired his weapon - shooting the suspect in the arm and chest. It is not known if more than one officer fired their weapon or if the suspect fired at officers.
The injured man was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police say.
The name of the injured man is not being released at this time.
