Maryland Deputy Shoots Man in Chest

SUITLAND, Md. (AP) - A Prince George's County sheriff's deputy has shot a man after responding to a domestic violence call.

The sheriff's office says the deputy had responded to a Suitland home around 1 a.m. Thursday after a woman called 911. Upon arrival, the sheriff's office says a man became confrontational and that the deputy opened fire.

The man was shot in the chest and taken to a hospital in serious condition. The deputy was uninjured.

It's unclear whether the man who was shot was armed. An investigation is underway.
