ABERDEEN (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man who was shot by an Aberdeen police officer for felony aggravated assault and drug charges.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says the incident happened after officers responded to a disturbance call at a residence shortly after midnight Saturday.

Jackley says 21-year-old Ehkhu Hser Poe of Aberdeen was shot and taken to a hospital with undisclosed injuries. His condition wasn't released.

It wasn't immediately clear if Poe has an attorney.

Jackley did not name the officer who was involved. The officer will be placed on administrative leave during the investigation, which is standard procedure.

An officer also was hurt during the incident. Jackley says the officer was treated at a hospital for serious injuries that weren't life threatening and released.
