LEXINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina sheriff says one of his deputies shot and wounded a man while responding to a call over a domestic disturbance between a father and son.

Davidson County Sheriff Richie Simmons says the shooting happened Friday morning but declined to give details about how it occurred. Simmons says the State Bureau of Investigation will investigate what happened.

Media outlets report the man shot - Ellis Ray Coleman Jr. of Lexington - was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. A hospital nursing supervisor said Saturday that no one by that name was at the hospital. A message left with the sheriff’s office wasn’t returned. No charges had been filed.
