GREENCASTLE, Ind. (AP) - Police say an Indiana sheriff’s deputy shot and wounded a man who pointed a gun at another officer while they were responding to a domestic disturbance call.

State police say two Putnam County deputies and a special deputy responded late Thursday to a 911 call from a woman involving her 35-year-old live-in boyfriend in a rural area near Greencastle, about 40 miles west of Indianapolis.

Deputies found the woman at a neighbor’s home. When they went to the woman’s home to investigate police say the 35-year-old man came to the door with a handgun and pointed it at the special deputy. Police say the 21-year-old deputy fired twice.

Police say the man was airlifted to a hospital, where he’s being treated Friday. The deputies and the couple’s 3-year-old twins in the home weren’t hurt.
