Davis said the investigation is still early, but the suspect may have sexually assaulted his wife. A protective order has been in place against the suspect since January, which stated he was not allowed at the house. The order is good for 12 months, Davis said.
When the deputy arrived and tried to question the suspect, he fled and tried to run over the deputy in the yard, Davis said. The suspect then crashed into a deputy squad car.
The suspect fled into Sour Lake and then returned to the home and tried to break down the back door, Davis said. Two deputies fired weapons at some point during the incident, and the suspect was struck and taken to a hospital according to Davis. He told 12News the suspect was in stable condition when he left the scene. A 4-year-old girl was injured by a deputy's bullet that ricocheted according to Davis.
