READING, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- An investigation is underway after a police officer shot a person outside a Wawa in Reading, Pennsylvania on Wednesday evening.
Officers swarmed the business located on the 400 block of Lancaster Avenue just before 5 p.m.
Action News has learned that a Reading police officer opened fire into a vehicle that was occupied by two people.
Authorities say one person was shot and taken to an area hospital. There was no immediate word on their condition.
District Attorney John Adams offered little information as to what caused the officer to fire.
"We are aware of what prompted this and we will release that information at a later time," said Adams.
Chopper 6 was overhead as the parking lot was cordoned off with crime tape.
The Wawa has since reopened.
DA Adams says there is no threat to the public.
