A Barrow man was shot by North Slope Borough police after allegedly threatening to shoot himself and officers.
KTUU-TV says officers were responding to a domestic violence call on Wednesday morning when the shooting occurred.
According to authorities, officers were called to the home on Okpik St. shortly after 5 a.m. They found the suspect -- a 31-year-old man -- had left the home but returned with a firearm.
Police ordered the man to put down the weapon but say he didn't comply. Police say when he pointed the gun at officers, one of them inflicted a non-lethal wound to his arm and shoulder.
The man was flown to the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage, where he remains in serious but stable condition.
