A man who was shot after allegedly threatening protective services officers on a Melbourne bridge has been charged with assault.
Police and protective officers were attending a separate violent incident near Princes Street Bridge in Melbourne's CBD about 7.30pm on Friday when a man confronted them.
The 20-year-old Pakenham man produced a broken glass bottle and began making threats towards a protective services officer.
The officers attempted to use pepper spray on the man to no effect and he allegedly continued to pursue and threaten an officer.
Both officers then drew their weapons, with one firing two shots at the man.
One shot hit him in the abdomen and the second bullet has not been accounted for.
The man was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
On Tuesday the man was charged with two counts of common assault, two counts of assaulting protective services officers, two counts of threatening the officers and reckless conduct.
He was remanded in custody following a hospital bedside hearing and is due to front the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on May 7.
Police do not believe the incident was terror-related.
