About 6:15 a.m., officers from the Ogden Police District responded to a call about a male with a gun in the 2600 block of South Hamlin Avenue, police said in a statement. Police later found a male — whose age was not immediately known — at the corner of 27th Street and Avers Avenue pointing a gun at officers, the statement said.

Officers shot him and he was taken to a hospital, police said.

No police were injured in the shooting.
