York, NE - A York County Sheriff's deputy injured a man in an early morning gunfight.

The man is recovering at a Lincoln hospital.

The shooting happened just after 4 a.m. Sunday. The deputy spotted a vehicle driven by a man reportedly involved in a domestic dispute. The deputy chased the vehicle until it went into a ditch on the southwest side of York.

The sheriff says the man got out of the vehicle, carrying a rifle, and fired twice at the deputy.

That's when the deputy shot back, hitting the man twice.
