Man shot by Georgia police charged with assault on officer

By The Associated Press

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a man who was shot by police in Georgia has been charged with burglary and aggravated assault on a police officer.

The state Bureau of Investigation tells news outlets in a Wednesday statement that 27-year-old Andrew Joseph Allen was treated at a hospital and released after a Gwinnett County police officer shot him. No officers were injured.

Police said in a statement the man who the bureau is identifying as Allen was shot Tuesday night. Police say their gang unit was investigating at a home when officers heard yelling and a gunshot at another property and found Allen arguing with a resident.

Both the bureau and the police department say Allen pointed a handgun at the officers. It is unclear if Allen has a lawyer who could comment.
