A security officer shot and wounded a man thwarting an attempted robbery at a San Bernardino marijuana dispensary Thursday night, according to San Bernardino police.

Officers were called to the 300 block of West 16th Street around 8:30 p.m. on reports of “multiple shots were fired,” according to officials.

They learned a security officer opened fire on a man who possibly had tried to rob the dispensary, according to Lt. Michael Madden, however he said witnesses were “less than forthcoming with officers about what took place.”

Police officials did not say how extensive the wounded person’s injuries were but he was eventually placed under arrest. His name was not immediately available.

The shooting is under investigation. Police ask anyone who may have witnesses anything to call the San Bernardino Police Department at 909-384-5742.
