San Diego police shoot man allegedly pointing rifle at officers
A San Diego police officer shot a man who pointed a rifle at officers during a street confrontation Saturday night, authorities said.
Police had responded to a call about a man shooting a rifle in the North Park neighborhood. When the man refused several commands to drop the rifle and instead pointed it "in the direction of the officers," an officer shot him, police said.
The man, whose name was not released, was taken to the hospital with what police said was a non-life-threatening wound. The officer was described only as a four-year veteran of the department.
