LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP) - A north Florida deputy shot and wounded a man who authorities say tried to run over the deputy and others with a vehicle.

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office reports that the suspect was airlifted to a nearby hospital in stable condition Tuesday morning.

Officials say deputies had responded to a landlord-tenant dispute in a rural area west of Lake City. When the deputies approached a man sitting in his vehicle, The Gainesville Sun (https://goo.gl/eYuiAI ) reports that the man started the vehicle and drove aggressively toward the deputies and complainants.

One of the deputies fired his pistol, hitting the suspect in the torso.

No other injuries were reported.

The suspect’s name wasn’t immediately released.
