COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) --A report of a man cutting himself brought Columbus police to a west side motel Wednesday night.

Officers arrived at the America's Best Value Inn on St. James Lutheran Lane and found a room with the door open.  They say they were forced to shoot when one of the men charged at them with his hands in his waistband, ignoring commands to stop and show his hands.

The man was taken to a local hospital and is listed in stable condition.

Police did find a pair of scissors at the scene.

It's believed alcohol may be a factor in the shooting.
