ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Police in Orlando say a man suffered non-life-threatening injuries after being shot by an officer in a drug bust operation.

Authorities say the Orlando Police Department's Drug Enforcement Unit was conducting an investigation Friday evening around 10:30 a.m.

During the operation, a man ran from police.

When officers caught up to him, they say he made a movement an officer perceived as a threat.

The man, who police identified as Ronnery Fell, was transported to a local hospital.

He has been charged with selling cannabis and resisting an officer without violence.

The officer was not injured and has been placed on administrative leave with pay.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating.
