No further information about how the suspect was apprehended was immediately available.

Faine said the female deputy who was shot while responding to a report of a domestic situation at the apartment complex at about 9:45 p.m. Thursday has been treated and released from a hospital. Another person also was shot and taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The names of the two were not immediately released.
