The two officers had approached a man who matched a description of a suspect in a home burglary.
Authorities say the man fled, followed by the officers, and then turned and pointed a handgun. The officers fired three shots, hitting the man in the torso.
He was taken to the hospital in stable condition. One of the officers was treated for a knee injury and the other for tinnitus from the gunshot sounds.
Authorities recovered a gun and ammunition at the scene.
