PLYMOUTH (CBS) – A Taunton man is in the hospital after being shot by a police officer on Sunday.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office said police received a report of men with guns in the area of Forest Ave in Plymouth around 8 p.m. on Sunday.

Arriving officers spotted a van that they stopped. During that traffic stop, officers say Trevor Wood, 21, jumped out and took off running.

Officers say he was carrying a handgun and had a bandana covering his face.

An officer shot him after officials say he ignored orders to drop that gun.

He was flown to a Boston hospital and is expected to survive the shooting.

Wood is charged with assault with intent to murder and unlawful possession of a firearm.

State Police are investigating the entire incident.
