An officer shot a man who allegedly went for a gun today during a confrontation outside a yacht-sales office at Oceanside Harbor.
The patrolman opened fire about 9:15 a.m. while responding to a complaint about someone sleeping on a bench in front of the business, according to police.
The shooting occurred after the man ignored orders to show his hands and reached for a pistol he was carrying, Lt. Leonard Cosby told reporters.
Medics airlifted the wounded man to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, a dispatcher said. His condition was not immediately released, nor was his name.
