CHANDLER, AZ — A Friday morning police shooting is under investigation at a Chandler hotel.

Officials were called to the hotel near Chandler Village Drive and Chandler Boulevard, near Chandler Fashion Center, around 7 a.m. Friday.

Officers were reportedly made aware of a "suspicious" incident involving a person who was hiding from another. Officers determined the incident was related to domestic violence.

When officers arrived, they learned a man was hiding from officers. After contact was made with the man, he displayed a gun, prompting officers to fire at him.

The man was taken to the hospital for treatment. It's not clear what condition the man is in at this time.

Two officers, who are believed to have body-worn cameras activated at the time, were involved in the incident.

Police said in a tweet there is no danger to the public and no outstanding suspects.

The victim of the domestic violence incident, a woman, was not injured during the incident.
