A man was shot by an officer in Polk County after reaching for his own gun Wednesday afternoon, the GBI said.
A domestic dispute in the 1200 block of Pleasant Hill Road led to Polk police officers becoming involved, officials said. At around 1:15 p.m., officers met with Flint Dawson Warren at the location and witnesses told the GBI the 63-year-old reached for a gun on his waist during the interaction.
An officer then shot Warren, according to the state agency. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition. No officers were injured.
The incident marks the 41st officer-involved shooting the GBI has been asked to investigate this year and at least the third in less than 24 hours.
