TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Tucson say a 26-year-old man shot by police faces aggravated assault and other charges after firing shots at Pima County Sheriff’s deputies during a domestic violence call.

The sheriff’s department says Jose Silva will be charged with two counts of aggravated assault on an officer and two counts of unlawful flight from law enforcement upon his release from the hospital.

Silva is accused of fleeing from police during a domestic violence investigation and then firing shots at them during a pursuit on Saturday.

Deputies fired back and struck Silva in the arm.

The deputies weren’t injured.
