October 17, 2017

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say deputies have shot and wounded a man after he pointed a gun at them in a southwest Missouri home.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that the shooting happened Monday night after a deputy responded to a call about bullet holes in a house. The release says a deputy was inspecting the damage when he saw more gunshot holes in a neighboring house and a woman peering out a window.

Backup was called, and two deputies went to the neighboring home. They saw a man walk down a hallway, reappear with a weapon and raise it toward them. The release says both deputies fired at the 58-year-old man, who was rushed to a hospital. He is in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.
