BREAKING: Deputy Shot Multiple Times In North Carolina

Caswell County, NC – A Caswell County sheriff’s deputy was shot multiple times on Wednesday morning in Semora when he went to a home to serve a domestic violence protection order.

Caswell County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputies arrived at the residence on Paradise Lane at about 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 10, WNCN reported.

Deputies approached the large farmhouse and were greeted by gunfire, WXII reported.

The sheriff’s department has confirmed that one deputy was shot multiple times.

He was transported to Duke University Hospital for treatment, WXII reported.

Officials have not yet released any information about his medical condition, WRAL reported.

However, a Person County dispatcher said over the air that Caswell County was seeking assistance after “a male in the residence started shooting” and “shot the deputy in the shoulder,” according to WNCN.

The suspect barricaded himself inside the farmhouse after he shot the deputy and has engaged in a standoff with law enforcement, WXII reported.

There were family members caught inside the farmhouse when the standoff began but they have since been able to escape, according to WNCN.

Deputies have set up a perimeter around the property and taken positions of cover.

The standoff is ongoing, according to WXII.

Authorities have not yet released the identity of the gunman.
