A man who was wanted for an October 5th robbery shot at deputies when they attempted to arrest him.
The video shows the robbery suspect, Timothy Thomas, emerge from his vehicle with at least one hand in the air before he fires several rounds at the deputies. Deputy Josh Gordon was hit in the chest but had only minor injuries, thanks to his bulletproof vest.
