Anderson police spokesman Maj. Joel Sandefur says the man was shot in the arm around 5 a.m. Wednesday during the execution of a search warrant.
The Herald Bulletin reports the man was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Sandefur says the man wasn’t the target of the Madison County Drug Task Force warrant. He said other people were inside the residence, but they weren’t injured.
