JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A southern Indiana sheriff says an officer is recovery from a leg wound he suffered when a man fired several shots during a long standoff.
Clark County sheriff's Detective Chris Proctor was with a SWAT team when police say 31-year-old Joshua Priddy opened fire Monday from inside a Sellersburg house.
Sheriff Danny Rodden tells the News and Tribune that Proctor needed minor surgery for the wound near his knee. Rodden says Proctor had taken cover behind a shield, but his leg was exposed.
Rodden says Proctor is in good spirits but doesn't know how long he'll be off duty.
Priddy is jailed on several preliminary charges, including attempted murder. Officers fired tear gas into the house to end the nearly 10-hour-long standoff, during which a police dog was killed.
