Ohio police shoot man after confrontation

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a man has been shot by a Columbus police officer after he fired his gun into a house on the city's east side.

Thomas M. Bell II is in stable condition at a hospital after being shot in the midsection on Thursday.

Police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner says police received a call at around 6:35 p.m. about a man firing shots outside a house. He says when officers arrived they were directed to the home's rear, where they began chasing a suspect. During a confrontation, an officer shot Bell.

Weiner says the incident appears to have stemmed from a domestic dispute. Earlier Thursday, a woman was granted a protection order against Bell but Weiner says it hadn't been served before the shooting.

Police recovered a handgun and ammunition.
