Two Pueblo police officers were involved in a shooting early Tuesday morning.

Neither officer was injured, according to multiple media outlets. The suspect was taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries.

The shooting happened in the area of Abriendo Avenue near Lamar Avenue, according to Gazette news partner KKTV. This is less than 300 feet from the main branch of the Pueblo City-County Library.

The officers had responded to the home just before 4:30 a.m. after receiving reports of shots fired during some sort of disturbance, according to KKTV. 

"Officers arrived on scene. What happened after they arrived is still under investigation, but ultimately two officers fired at a male ... who was struck, I believe, two times," Capt. Kenny Rider with the Pueblo Police Department, told KKTV.

Rider said the suspect, a 34-year-old man, was then taken to a paramedic and later transported to the hospital. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
