SPOTSYLVANIA COURTHOUSE, Va. (AP) — Authorities say a Virginia deputy shot and wounded a man after responding to a 911 call about a domestic disturbance.

Virginia State Police Sgt. Brent Coffey wrote in an email that the deputy arrived on the scene in Spotsylvania County early Wednesday morning and encountered Isaiah L. Brown as Brown was walking in the roadway away from his residence.

Coffey says the deputy attempted to talk to Brown and shot him during the encounter. Police say Brown was taken to a hospital with injuries that were serious but not life-threatening. No one else was injured during the incident.
