Texas Department of Public Safety officials say a state trooper has shot and wounded a man who had fled from a sheriff’s deputy in West Texas.

Lt. Bryan Witt says the man, was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Cochran County along the Texas-New Mexico border about 50 miles west of Lubbock. Witt says when a Cochran County deputy responded to a call from the man’s home Saturday, the deputy said the man pointed a rifle at him and then took off in a pickup truck.

A state trooper in the chase shot the man. Police say they found two rifles, a handgun and a large amount of ammunition in his truck.
