"The deputy approached the suspect and tried to detain him, a struggle ensued, and the suspect pulled out a large revolver, pointed it at the deputy, and fired a round," Orange County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Larry Zwieg said. "The deputy immediately returned fire, and the suspect was struck several times."
The suspect is now in critical condition. The deputy resigned to administrative duties while state investigators and the Sheriff's Office investigate the shooting.
