It happened at a home off Tamar near Denkman. Police tell us officers had gone to the home for a domestic violence call, but a man accused of beating up a woman came outside armed with a weapon.
One of the officers opened fire, hitting the man in the arm. He was taken to the hospital and will survive.
Pasadena detectives are still investigating and haven't said what charges the man may face.
