CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Christi Police say a man is in critical condition following an officer-involved shooting that took place last night.

Police say it started when they received a call around at 8:30 p.m. Sunday on Shadowbend Drive about a man with a weapon threatening people.

Officers say when they arrived at the home, the man wasn’t there but was seen in his vehicle driving up to the house. CCPD says when officers approached the man, he got out of his vehicle, didn’t listen to the officer’s commands, and produced a weapon.

Police say officers shot the man and he was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The name of the man, and the officers involved, have not yet been released.
