COLLEGE STATION, Texas (FOX 44) – The College Station Police Department has confirmed an officer-involved shooting.

The department said on social media Monday morning that the shooting took place in the 5100 block of Bellerive Bend Drive. There is no active threat to the public.

During a press conference at noon, Chief Billy Couch said the incident started with a phone call requesting help with an individual in a home. A police officer and emergency medical personnel went to the address.

When the first officer arrived, Couch said a man came out of the house, carrying a hatchet. The officer says he asked the 26-year-old man to drop the hatchet several times, but the man would not comply.

The officer says the man ran at him, so he shot him twice in the upper chest. The man reportedly threw the hatchet, hitting the officer.

Emergency personnel quickly tended to the suspect and drove him to a hospital. His condition is said to have stabilized.

The officer was also injured, but he was treated and released.

Chief Couch says he has asked the Texas Rangers to investigate the shooting.
