A video released Friday by the Austin Police Department (APD) shows an officer shooting and injuring a man earlier this month.

Officers were called out to the Cliffs at Barton Creek Apartments in southwest Austin on April 6 following reports of a physical disturbance.

Police said when officers knocked on the front door, another officer standing near a sliding glass door by the balcony noticed a man inside approaching the front door with a gun. In the video, an officer is heard screaming the man has a gun before opening fire.

The man suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting and was released from the hospital the following day. KVUE is not identifying the man, since APD said he isn't facing charges at this time.
