THE BRONX — An NYPD officer shot a man who claimed to be high on Angel Dust after he fired a gun into the air and pointed it at a woman and small dog in Morrisania on Monday afternoon, according to the NYPD and other sources.

The officer shot the 29-year-old man in his right shoulder while he walking in front of 1071 Tinton Ave. across the street from Basil Behagen Playground with his gun drawn at about 3:45 p.m., police and sources said. 

Investigators released footage showing the suspect walking down the street and pointing his gun at a passerby.

The man was treated at Lincoln Hospital for injuries that weren't considered life threatening, according to an NYPD spokesman.

He was still in the hospital and had not been formally charged as of Tuesday morning, police said.

He claimed he was on PCP, sources said, though it was not immediately clear exactly when he made the statements.

Some residents spotted the man firing the weapon into the air at the corner of East 166th Street and Tinton Avenue, sources said. 

They then flagged down three officers driving in a police cruiser at East 165th Street and Tinton.

The officers found the man mid block and two of them fired their weapons, striking the suspect once.

Investigators recovered what appeared to be a .22 caliber gun at the scene, the spokesman said.

It was not immediately clear what led to the shooting after police first approached the man. 

None of the officers was injured in the shooting.
