LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- A man was shot and injured by police officers in Radcliff, Kentucky, early Thursday morning.
Kentucky State Police are investigating shooting that happened about 2:15 a.m. outside the Pin Oak Acquisition Apartments on Navaho Court.
Radcliff Police say they were responding to a report of an armed robbery, when officers saw a man "wielding a knife."
KSP Trooper Scotty Sharp says the suspect reportedly charged at two of the four officers on scene. Both officers fired their weapons, hitting the man. There is no word on how many times the suspect was hit, but he was flown to University of Louisville Hospital. He is expected to survive.
The two Radcliff Police officers who fired their guns have been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.
A witness to the shooting believes the man was shot four times. Video provided by one witness shows a man lying on the ground handcuffed. He was moving and appeared to be talking with police.
Bianca Wolz, who lives nearby, tells WDRB that the man who was shot didn't strike her as the kind of person who would try rob someone.
"He's lived here for about five years, and we've never had any problems with anybody that I know of, so I don't see anybody robbing -- especially him -- robbing anybody around here."
Wolz says a misunderstanding may have led to the shooting. "The neighbors upstairs said that they seen him, like, go toward the cops, and I guess he tripped over the curb."
Radcliff Police say their officers were wearing body cameras during the incident, and that footage will be turned over to Kentucky State Police investigators.
No officers were injured in the incident. Charges are pending against the suspect.
