The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called to the scene of an officer-involved shooting at a packaging company in Dalton, Georgia.

According to the Dalton Police Department, the shooting happened after 9 a.m. at the Sonoco packaging company on the 2500 block of Abutment Road in Dalton.

Officials say officers were called with reports of an "agitated man" at the corner of Abutment Road and Callahan Road who was running into the street and stopping cars.

When officers got onto the scene, they encountered 32-year-old David Schmitt, who investigators said physically attacked the officer.

After being hit with a Taser, officials say he was able to get up and take the Taser away from the officer and attempted to use it. At that time the officer fired his weapon, hitting Schmitt multiple times.

Medics transported Schmitt to the hospital with non-life-threatening wounds.

Police say the officer had minor injuries.

The GBI is still investigating.
