PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – An armed man shot by police officers at a Northeast Portland Starbucks cafe has been released from a hospital and arrested.

The Oregonian reports 34-year-old Ryan Beisley was released from the hospital Saturday night and lodged at the Multnomah County Jail.

He had been sought on a federal warrant.

Police say Beisley on Friday night began shouting at employees in the coffee shop connected to the Hollywood District Fred Meyer.

Workers went to a back room and locked themselves in to get away.

Responding officers saw Beisley had a gun.

Four officers fired as Beisley walked out of the coffee shop. Police say he suffered non-life-threatening wounds.

Four Portland police officers are on paid administrative leave while the shooting is under investigation.
