A man who allegedly was armed was shot by police in Great Falls.

It happened near 10th Avenue North and 52nd Street just before 10:30 a.m. on Monday.

Numerous officers from several agencies are at the scene investigating.

Police have blocked off 10th Avenue North from 57th Street to approximately 50th Street.

There is no word yet on whether any officers have been injured, nor the current condition of the suspect.

An ambulance was seen seen leaving the area.

We have received several reports that nearby Morningside Elementary School briefly implemented "shelter in place" procedures, but do not yet know if that was related to the shooting.

Several people have also told KRTV that a helicopter was seen circling the area just before the shooting.

The GFPD said in a press release: "We can confirm our officers have been involved in a shooting. As the incident scene is safe we are just getting the investigation started."

Sgt. Jim Wells of the Great Falls Police Department declined to release any other details at the scene.

We will update you as we get more information.

The last shooting of a suspect in Great Falls happened in September 2017, when Thomas Jordan Addison was shot and killed by an officer. In April 2017, a knife-wielding suspect was shot and injured by an officer.
