ALAMO, N.M. (AP) - Navajo Nation police say an officer responding to a domestic call shot and wounded a bat-wielding person who allegedly charged the officer.
    
The Police Department said in a statement that the officer was not injured in the incident that occurred Friday evening in Alamo.
    
Alamo is 67 miles (108 kilometers) southwest of Albuquerque in a tribal area separate from the main reservation that includes much of northwestern New Mexico.
    
The wounded person was transported to a hospital for treatment but the statement said his condition wasn't available.
    
He was described as male but his age and name weren't released.
    
The statement said the Navajo Division of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were investigating the incident and that no additional information was available.
