We are following an officer involved shooting. Officers were called to a home on Herndon near Staples Tuesday night around 11 after someone reported shots fired. Investigators say a man, a woman and her son were arguing. When officers arrived, they found a 44-year-old man in the front yard armed with a gun.

"He fired at the officers. They returned fire. The individual was struck and he was transported to Memorial Hospital," said Commander John Houston with the Corpus Christi Police Department.

Commander Houston says there is no word on how many times the man was shot. No officers were injured. The relationship between the man and the woman is unknown. The district attorney's office is following up this officer involved shooting.
