SHELBY, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina deputy shot in the face and leg during a confrontation now is recovering at home.
Media organizations report Cleveland County Sheriff's Deputy Tim Sims was discharged Saturday from a Charlotte hospital. He was receiving emergency treatment after the Tuesday night shootout.
Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman said Sims was responding to a call about a man wanted on probation and other violations spotted at an auto dealership between Kings Mountain and Shelby.
Authorities say Sims confronted 23-year-old Dakota Greene, who Norman says shot the deputy. Sims shot at Greene's fleeing car.
Greene is charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a felon. It's not clear if he has a lawyer; a phone listing for Greene is disconnected.
