An off-duty deputy sheriff was shot and injured in Texas northeast of Dallas on Sunday. The deputy, who was believed to be shopping at Walmart, found himself involved after a man with a long gun and a handgun was chased by local officers in the Walmart parking lot. That man had reportedly fired at least three shots from his car in a town about 12 miles away.
The shooter was killed, and the deputy was transported to a hospital. The full story can be read at www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/dn/latestnews/stories/030710dnmetcommerce.1858a0ede.html
The article doesn't report exactly who fired the shot that injured Delta County Deputy Paul Robertson. One of the most dangerous situations for all law enforcement officers is when a suspect is in the middle of opposite lines of fire. Add to that that the deputy was off-duty and presumably not in uniform. Cops are trained to look beyond the target to avoid shooting bystanders, should their bullets miss the target.
