SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A man was taken to the hospital Friday morning following a standoff at a Bay Park home that ended with a San Diego police officer firing shots.

At about 7:30 a.m., San Diego police officers were following up on an elder abuse case from earlier in the week and looking to speak to 47-year-old Ken Bui at his home.

Bui -- armed with a rifle and knife -- fled from his home and entered the backyard of a home in the 2800 block of Arnott Street, just south of Clairemont Drive, according to police.

Bui barricaded himself in the yard and refused officers' orders to surrender. Officers tried different ways to end the standoff, including sending in a police dog and firing rubber bullets, but Bui did not give up.

When Bui found himself surrounded, police said he pointed his rifle at one of the officers. An officer, fearing for his safety, fired twice at Bui, police said.

Officers eventually made their way to Bui's location to apprehend him. He was taken to the hospital but police have yet to clarify what other injuries he may have.

No other injuries were reported.

Police said the incident is being investigated as an officer-involved shooting due to the firing of a service weapon.
