THE BRONX - Authorities say a gun-wielding man was shot by police outside of a restaurant on East 187th Street on Saturday.

Police say officers inside the Sake II restaurant heard a commotion outside just after 7:30 p.m. They say they found 22-year-old Jayson Ramos outside holding up a gun and threatening to shoot three people.

The officers ordered Ramos to drop the gun. Instead, he fled on foot down Beaumont Avenue, prompting the officers to give chase.

As they were chasing Ramos down the street, he allegedly turned around and pointed a 9mm pistol at them. One officer took action and shot him in the leg.

Ramos was taken into custody and taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital in stable condition. The officers were checked out at Jacobi Medical Center and are OK.

Ramos is now facing charges including criminal possession of a weapon with intent to use and reckless endangerment.
