Authorities did not immediately provide information about what led up to the shooting, which occurred about 10:30 p.m. in the 21300 block of Bottle Tree Lane.

The incident appeared to take place at an apartment complex, video from the scene showed.

The deputy was transported to a local hospital in unknown condition, but is expected to survive, according to sheriff’s Deputy Juanita Navarro.

The suspect was treated at the scene before being taken to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, authorities said.

In a tweet sent shortly after 11 p.m., the department warned people to stay away from the area amid an active scene and search. Officials later confirmed there was a possible second suspect, prompting the active containment.

Dockweiler Drive between Valle Del Oro and Sierra Highway has been temporarily shut down as a result. It was unknown when the closure would be lifted.

Navarro said investigators were still gathering information, and no additional details were immediately being released.
