ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) — A suspect was shot in an officer-involved shooting after officers said he pointed a gun at them in St. Petersburg Thursday night.

According to Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gulatieri, a man, identified as 21-year-old Torey Barber was walking around the area of 22nd Avenue South and 34th Street South with a handgun around 8:50 p.m.

Deputies said St. Pete police got calls from several citizens who reported Barber shot the gun earlier in the night in a nearby neighborhood.

PCSO said when SPPD officers found Barber, they told him to drop the gun, but he instead ran.

Officers chased him to a parking lot on 34th Street South, where they said Barber pointed the gun at officers. That’s when an officer fired “two or three shots” at Barber from the cruiser, hitting him in the arm.

Barber was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The officer was not injured, according to police.

The officer who fired the shots was placed on administrative leave until the investigation is over. SPPD Chief Anthony Holloway said the officer was three days into his field training, but had prior experience in Philadelphia.

The other officers will be back at work on Friday.

According to Sheriff Gulatieri, charges are not official yet, but Barber will at least be charged with aggravated assault with a firearm on a law enforcement officer. He said Barber has prior arrests and Baker Acts.

All lanes of 34th Street will closed at the location of the incident for the next few hours.
