    Police say a man who had a beef with the owner of a pub in Ireland's Cork City is recovering from stomach wounds today after being shot by Gardai.

    The man allegedly entered the pub brandishing a shotgun and demanded the presence of the owner. Patrons fled and unarmed Garda Siochana units arriving called for an armed response unit.

    Three armed officers entered the pub and ordered the suspect to lower his weapon, firing one shot that struck him in the stomach area when he refused.

    Nobody else was hurt.

    Just another incident to demonstrate how our brother and sisters in other countries are forced to deal differently with situations when first responding units generally are unarmed officers who find themselves faced by armed suspects.
