Deputy Christopher Hendrix was shot by a suspect while responding to a disturbance call in the 13000 block of Ella Boulevard at the Cranbrook Apartments.
Authorities said this was the second time the deputies were responding to the location for a domestic violence call when things turned physical between deputies and the suspect. During the altercation, the suspect opened fire with a rifle, injuring one of the two constables.
Hendrix was pulled out of the scene to safety, while other constables shot back at the suspect. The suspect barricaded himself in the apartment and a SWAT team was then called out for help.
