The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office is investigating an officer-involved shooting in a parking lot that sent a man to the hospital Saturday night in Brooklyn Park.

According to authorities, at around 11 p.m. officers with the Brooklyn Park Police Department were dispatched to a large fight at Sisaket Oriental Market, located at 7324 Lakeland Ave. North, near 73rd Avenue and Bottineau Boulevard.

After officers arrive on the scene, shots were fired, authorities said.

Authorities said the man was transported to a hospital after he was shot by a Brooklyn Park officer.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Jennifer Johnson didn't immediately know his condition Sunday or whether the injury was considered life-threatening.
    
Johnson says she's not aware whether the officers were also fired upon, nor whether the officer fired more than one shot. She says the incident is still in the early stages of investigation.
   
At the police department's request, the sheriff's office is handling the investigation.

No arrests have been made.
