An unspecified number of Castle Rock police officers were placed on paid administrative leave Dec. 24 after an officer-involved shooting sent one individual to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to a town news release.

The officers involved responded to a home on South Sierra Drive at approximately 2:52 p.m. on Christmas Eve after reports of a suicidal person, the town said.

According to the release, officers had entered the home when the subject pointed a weapon at them, prompting an officer to shoot. The suspect was then transported to the hospital.

The 18th Judicial District is investigating the incident and the officers are on paid leave. The town did not release more information.
