    An officer-involved shooting in Pittsburg Tuesday night left three family members in the hospital.

    Police were called to the scene of an armed man, identified as Rigoberto Gutierrez, acting “irrationally” at his mother’s house. When officers arrived at the home, the man reached for a gun, which prompted officers to fire rounds in his direction.

    Gutierrez was struck in the leg, police said. His father and teenage brother were also hit when bullets passed through a screen door. All three are expected to recover, according to police.

    Gutierrez will be booked on assault and weapons charges, police said.
