Authorities say a McCurtain County deputy and a hit-and-run suspect were wounded in a shootout near Broken Bow on Saturday.

An Oklahoma Department of Wildlife says game warden and deputy Corey Sharrock went to 42-year-old Charles Brown's home on Friday.

"When the deputy approached Brown, Brown went inside his home, retrieved a rifle, and shot the deputy one time," a report says. "The deputy was able to fire his weapon before Brown ran from the scene."

Sharrock was hit just below his bullet resistant vest, but managed to hit Brown in the arm.

Both are in a hospital and are said to be stable.
