LOUISVILLE, Neb. (AP) - A man who came out his home and began shooting at deputies who’d been called there was hit several times as they returned his fire, an eastern Nebraska sheriff said Thursday.

Cass County deputies were sent to the home east of Louisville around 10:25 p.m. Wednesday. While they were speaking to the man’s wife on the front porch, the man came out the front door and began firing at the deputies, Sheriff William Brueggemann said.

None of the man’s shots hit the deputies, the sheriff said, and they gave the man first aid while awaiting medics. He was taken to an Omaha hospital.

The man’s name and those of the deputies have not been released.

Brueggemann said he’s asked the Nebraska State Patrol to take over the investigation.
