KILN, Miss. (AP) - A sheriff's office in Mississippi says a man wounded in a shootout with deputies has been flown to a hospital for treatment.
Hancock County Chief Deputy Jeremy Skinner told news outlets that deputies were dispatched to a home in Kiln around 7 p.m. on Monday for a disturbance call.
Skinner said that as deputies pulled into the man’s driveway, he began firing shots at them, so deputies returned fire.
The agency confirmed the man suffered a gunshot wound.
His condition wasn't known Monday night.
No deputies were wounded in the shooting and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation will review the case.
