Alberta's police watchdog has been called in after a suspect was shot by officers in northeast Calgary Sunday night.
Police were called to a home on Coventry Hills Way N.E. near Harvest Hills Blvd. N. at about 9:45 p.m. for reports of an unknown man with a weapon trying to get into the building.
When they arrived, police say they attempted to de-escalate the situation, but failed, resulting in two officers discharging their service weapons.
The suspect was immediately provided medical care at the scene and taken to hospital in non-life-threatening condition.
No officers were injured during the incident.
