TEKAMAH, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been arrested after officials believe he fired a shot at a Burt County sheriff’s deputy in northeastern Nebraska.

Omaha television station KETV reports that family members of a 23-year-old man called the sheriff’s office Wednesday night concerned about his well-being. A deputy sent to a rural farm to check on him says the man fired a shot at him when he was asked to get out of his vehicle. The deputy was not injured.

Officials say the deputy requested backup, and the 23-year-old man fled. He was later found in an outbuilding and arrested around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

He was taken to a mental health treatment facility and is expected to face charges.
