Redding, Calif -- The Shasta County Sheriff's Office says 38-year-old Levi Strauss Nicholson of Redding was on the Buckeye School of the Arts elementary school campus around 12:40 in the afternoon carrying a bat.
The department adds, when officers arrived Nicholson ran towards a home and remained in the backyard.
Nicholson was highly agitated and later put the bat in a position to use as a weapon against the officers.
That's when sheriff's say officers fired their gun in fear of safety.
Nicholson was hit multiple times and was then taken to Mercy Medical.
He's expected to survive.
Nicholas will be booked into the Shasta County Jail and charges will be filed against him once he's released from the hospital.
Sheriff's say they'll continue investigating the situation.
