LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 19-year-old man shot by a deputy near the Nebraska Capitol is out of the hospital and in jail.

Police say Tareik Artis was released from the hospital Wednesday and booked into the Lancaster County Jail. He has been charged with three counts of possession with intent to deliver and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Authorities say Lancaster County Deputy Jeffrey Moeller and a deputy U.S. Marshal shot Artis after he pointed a loaded handgun at them. Police say Artis was fleeing from a Lincoln officer after a traffic stop. Officials say the officer saw Artis had a gun and called for more aid.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner said last month that Moeller had followed department protocol in the shooting.
