ROANOKE, Va. -- Police responding to a trespassing call at a Virginia home shot and wounded a man early Saturday.

Roanoke Police Department spokeswoman Caitlyn Cline said on Sunday that the wounded man was in stable condition at a hospital.

His name and age weren't immediately released.

In a news release, the police department says the man repeatedly told officers that he had a firearm and wouldn’t comply with their commands before officers fired their weapons at him outside a home.

No officers were injured.
