San Bernardino police are investigating an officer-involved shooting Wednesday night, July 12.

Shortly after 7:30 p.m., federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents were involved in a shooting at the corner of Fourth Street and the Carousel Mall.

“There was an operation that resulted in shots fired. A defendant has been transported to the hospital,” Ginger L. Colbrun, spokesperson for the ATF’s Los Angeles office, said in a written statement. “No ATF personnel were injured.”

One man was pulled from a Mercedes Benz sedan, treated at the scene and taken to a nearby hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

Police have set a large perimeter around the shooting scene, blocking off the streets with yellow police tape.

Colbrun said the investigation is ongoing.
