Jacob Brundige said the man was driving the wrong way on Lomas near San Mateo, hitting multiple cars before he got out of his vehicle.

The man then climbed on top of his vehicle, and started waving his gun around, according to Brundige.

"An officer drove up right away, pointing his gun at him, asking him to get off the car and put his gun down," Brundige said. "The guy continued to put his hands up in the air do stuff and the cop shot him."

Cell phone video provided to KOB 4 shows a person, who appeared to be injured, on top of a vehicle. Police said the man was taken to the hospital where he was said to be "stable."

The officer was not hurt.
