    Police released this image of the gun they say the man pointed at officers.

    Authorities say a 24-year-old man running from officers in Brooklyn grabbed a loaded gun from his ankle and pointed it at the police, leading one of them to shoot him in the stomach.
    The NYPD says Teddy Spann was transported to Kings County Hospital and was listed in stable condition with a graze wound to the abdomen after the incident around 9:40 p.m. Friday. The officers were treated for ringing of the ears.

    Police say Spann was seen by the two officers tugging at his waistband and ran when police approached him.

    Spann has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon and menacing a police officer.

    The NYPD says a loaded .380 caliber firearm, pictured above, was found at the scene.

    Information on a lawyer for Spann was not immediately available.
