The Muskegon Police Department is investigating the discharge of a firearm by one of its officers late Sunday night at an incident in the area of Fifth Street and Southern Avenue.
Responding officers were originally sent to the area on a call of shots fired and found three people. The first officer advised one man to raise his hands, and the person pulled a handgun from the waist of his pants and raised it toward the officer, reported Muskegon Police Capt. Andrew Olson.
The officer - a six-year veteran - fired a single shot at the man, missing him.
