A 6 ABC Action News report said the incident happened happened on 7th & Filbert Streets at around 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Marshals Service said the suspect was illegally parked near the building, when he was approached by a security officer. That’s when the suspect reportedly exited the vehicle armed with what the spokesperson described as “multiple edged weapons”. The security guard reportedly asked the man to drop the weapons multiple times, but the suspect kept moving toward the officer, according to the spokesperson. At that time, the officer fired multiple shots, hitting the suspect multiple times.

The suspect was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was last reported to be undergoing surgery. An investigation is ongoing.
