Virginia State Police are investigating a shooting of a man by a sheriff’s deputy who was responding to a domestic dispute call, according to reports.
Isaiah L. Brown, 32, needed hospitalization but is expected to survive the shooting, which happened just after 3 a.m. on Wednesday in Spotsylvania, according to Fredericksburg.com.
Deputies had responded to a call about a fight at Brown’s home, and at least one encountered Brown as he was walking away from the scene.
The officer provided medical assistance immediately after discharging his gun, officials said.
