A Davenport Police officer shot an armed man who was wanted on an outstanding Scott County Warrant on Wednesday after the man refused to put down his weapon. 

In a news release issued Wednesday, Davenport Police said that at 3:37 p.m., officers saw an armed man in the 800 block of Iowa Street. 

Officers attempted to take the man into custody, but the man refused to comply with officers' commands for him to relinquish his weapon and give himself up. An officer then shot the man. 

Officers secured the scene, and the man was taken to Genesis Medical Center East, Davenport.

Davenport Police said that information will come from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, which is investigating the incident.
