Harbor Police officers on Sunday shot a 29-year-old man who drove to their headquarters, used a callbox to request assistance and then pulled out a handgun when officers walked out to help him, authorities said.

The man was reported hospitalized in critical condition after the shooting, which occurred around 1:30 p.m. in front of the police building on Harbor Drive near Harbor Island Drive.

No officers were injured, and no one else was in the car with the man, said San Diego police Capt. Richard Freeman.

He said the man was sitting in his gray Honda Civic when an officer came out to help. The man pulled out a handgun, prompting the officer to open fire. Two other Harbor Police officers came out of the building and also fired, the captain said.

The officers took the man into custody and began first aid. He was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition.

The Honda Civic could be seen stopped in front of the police headquarters as police personnel processed the scene into the evening. About two dozen evidence markers were placed on the front steps of the building.

San Diego homicide detectives are investigating the incident, as they do with all police shootings within city of San Diego limits.

This is a breaking news story that will be updated as more information becomes available.
