East Lansing police officers were involved in a shooting Monday night outside a Meijer store, city officials said.

The officers were dispatched to the store on Lake Lansing Road around 6:36 p.m. after a 911 call about a man who "pulled a gun out of a car, stuck it in his pocket and went into the store," the city said in a statement.

Responding officers spotted the man in the store,  according to the release.

A chase ensued outside, where the officers found the man and shots were fired, city officials said.

He was hospitalized in stable condition Monday night. 

No other injuries were reported. A weapon was recovered at the scene, city officials said.

Per the East Lansing Police Department's policy, two officers are being placed on paid administrative leave and the investigation is being taken over by the Michigan State Police.

One officer has two years of service and the other has two and a half, officials said.
