Ohio sheriff’s deputy, 1 other shot; police seek gunman

DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in Ohio say two people have been shot including a sheriff’s deputy, and the alleged gunman remains on the loose.

The shooting happened Thursday night in Deerfield Township, about 25 miles northeast of Cincinnati.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office says the deputy was shot while responding to report of a domestic situation.

Authorities say the deputy was taken to a hospital, and was “conscious and alert.” Another unidentified person also was shot. Their conditions were not immediately available.

The suspect is described as a 19-year-old man.

The Deerfield Township Fire Rescue sent out a tweet late Thursday warning of an active shooter situation. They advised people to stay inside and not to open their doors to strangers.

No other information was immediately available.

The investigation is ongoing.
