East Texas Deputies Shoot, Injure Suspect

Two East Texas officers open fire after a man shoots at them. Now, the suspect is at the hospital.  

The shooting happened at a home on County Road 4413 in Van. That's in Van Zandt county.     The Van Zandt county sheriff's department said this all began as a domestic disturbance call.

A woman told authorities her husband was threatening his life, and hers too. That's when deputies went to the home. The man, who has not been identified, opened fire at them. Two deputies shot back, hitting the man. It's uncertain how many rounds were fired. We're told the deputies were not injured.  It's uncertain at this time what condition the suspect is in, but he was taken to the hospital.

The Texas Rangers are investigating this incident.
