Missouri deputy shoots, injures man during domestic call


JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri sheriff’s deputy shot and injured a man while responding to a reported domestic assault call.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports that the Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating at the request of the Miller County sheriff.

Authorities say two deputies responded to a home near St. Anthony Friday afternoon.

Officers attempted to detain a 35-year-old man inside the home, but he resisted. Authorities say the man then got a rifle and approached the deputies.

One deputy fired his weapon, striking him. Deputies provided medical aid until emergency personnel arrived and he was transported by helicopter to an area hospital.
