SOUTH PORTLAND – A Portland man was shot, along with a police officer attempting to serve a warrant for his arrest here early Wednesday evening, officials said.

Both were being treated at Maine Medical Center, South Portland police Sgt. Todd Barlow said late Wednesday night. Their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, officials said.

He identified the Portland man as Terrel Dubois, 22, of Elm Street.

Officer Steve Connors was working in a joint operation with Portland police officers when Barlow opened fire, hitting him four times, WGME-TV reported. The suspect was shot when officers returned fire, the station said.

The officers had gone to Dubois’ girlfriend’s sister’s apartment on Elm Steet, Barlow said. The incident ended with shots being fired, South Portland Chief Ed Googins told reporters at the scene. He declined to provide further details of what happened.

The Attorney General’s Office was investigating as it’s required to do whenever an officer discharges a weapon.
