EUGNE, Ore. (AP) - A man is facing criminal charges after allegedly wounding a Lane County sheriff’s deputy during a shootout.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/wiDVD1 ) that 38-year-old Carlos Roa, who was also shot, was arraigned Monday at a Springfield hospital on charges of attempted aggravated murder with a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon.

The incident began Friday when four deputies responded to a home near Cottage Grove to reports of someone firing a gun. Roa allegedly opened fire on the deputies with an AK-47 rifle.

Deputy Todd Olson suffered a gunshot wound during the incident. He was taken to a hospital and has since been released.

Roa was also treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound.

He is to appear in court by Monday.
