  DETROIT (AP) -- U.S. authorities say that border agents shot and wounded an armed Canadian man as he walked toward an inspection station on the Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario.
   A U.S. Customs and Border Patrol representative says it happened about 3 a.m. Sunday on the U.S. side of the bridge.
   Kris Grogan says in a statement that the man "stopped his car before approaching the inspection booth, exited his vehicle and started walking towards the primary inspection lanes waving a handgun."
   Grogan says officers ordered the man to drop the gun, but he refused. Grogan says the officers shot and wounded the man, who was treated at a hospital and then jailed.
   Grogan says the man "is a citizen of Canada and has had previous encounters with Canadian law enforcement."
   The statement says that the Department of Homeland Security's Office of Inspector General, U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Office of Internal Affairs and Detroit police are investigating.
