Kellie Kilpatrick of the Independent Investigations Office of B.C. says the incident happened at about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday.
RCMP say officers were responding to a call about an intruder at a home who possibly had a knife.
Mounties say when they arrived, they were confronted by a man who would not comply with directions and an officer shot him.
The man was taken to hospital with what police say appeared to be non-life threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported.
Police say the investigations office has recovered a knife from the scene.
