SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A man who pulled a gun on a bar bouncer was shot and wounded by two off-duty Savannah officers after he pointed the weapon at them and fired, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.

Robert Gadson, 35, was in critical condition after the early Saturday shooting outside Boomys Restaurant & Bar, the GBI said in a statement.

The officers were not hurt.

The officers were providing off-duty security around 3 a.m. when they were told Gadson pulled the gun on a bouncer at a nearby club, investigators said.

Gadson pointed the gun at the officers and refused to drop the weapon. Both Gadson and the officers fired at each other, the GBI said.
