A man that police say was shot by officers after pointing a gun at them Friday night is now under arrest.

Teddy Spann, 24, of Staten Island is charged with criminal possession of a weapon and menacing a police officer.

The incident happened Friday night in Brooklyn.

Police say a loaded .380 caliber firearm, seen above, was recovered at the scene.

Investigators say three plainclothes officers in an unmarked car noticed a 24-year-old man tugging at his waistband at around 9:40 p.m. Friday near Malcolm X Boulevard and Monroe Street.

Two of the officers approached the man and say he ran off, according to investigators.

Investigators say officers chased the man into a schoolyard, where they say he grabbed a gun from his ankle and pointed it at them.

One of the officers opened fire, grazing the gunman in the stomach, according to police.

He was taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
