ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia say an armed man has been wounded in a shooting with police officers.

The Alexandria Police Department posted on Twitter early Friday morning that officers were investigating a possible break in when they encountered an armed person. The post says officers fired, wounding the man who was then transported to a hospital.

Lt. Courtney Valentine tells WRC the man is in stable condition. The outlet reports that police officials said the man had two weapons, including a gun.

Valentine says no officers were hurt.

Following department protocol, Virginia State police will investigate.
