Early Wednesday morning, a St. Louis County Police Officer shot a man who police say pointed a handgun at the officer.

The man, who has not been identified, is in critical condition. The incident occurred at about 1 a.m. near the intersection of West Florissant and Chambers Road, not far from the site where protesters are calling for justice in the killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

According to St. Louis Today:

Police said they received a call reporting about four to five men in the area armed with shotguns and wearing ski masks. They also got reports of shots fired in the area. Police officers arrived and saw “multiple subjects running,” said police spokesman Officer Brian Schellman.

An officer approached one of the men and he pulled a handgun on the officer who then fired, Schellman said.

Police said they recovered the handgun at the scene. The man was taken to a hospital.

In a separate incident, a woman was shot in the head in a drive-by shooting in Ferguson. Police are searching for four to five men in a white sedan.

The woman is expected to live.
