AKRON, OH (WOIO) -
An investigation is underway after an off duty cop shot an Akron man.

Police say the officer had just arrived to work as secondary police employment at Kelley's Drive-Thru Saturday night around 10:00 p.m. when he heard gun shots nearby.  As the officer went to investigate, he confronted a man with a gun. 

The officer ordered the suspect, later identified as 22-year-old Timothy Proctor, to drop the weapon but he refused.

The officer fired his weapon, striking Proctor.  He was taken to an area hospital where he is being treated for non-life threatening injuries. 

The Akron Police Department's Crimes Against Persons Unit along with the Summit County Prosecutor's Office will conduct the criminal investigation to determine if any laws were violated.

An internal investigation by the Office of Professional Standards and Accountability will also be conducted to determine if any departmental rules or regulations were violated. 

Proctor will be charged with carrying a concealed weapon and weapon under disability.  He will be booked into the Summit County Jail once he is released from the hospital.
