An off-duty sheriff’s deputy from Vermont was shot multiple times by police in New York after he was involved in a gunfight with another group of people early Sunday morning, police said.

Shots were fired around 3 a.m. at the intersection of Broadway and Caroline Street in Saratoga Springs, New York, near an area with bars and nightlife, following a scuffle between the deputy and a group of people from the Utica area, police said.

The deputy, who was not identified, was “physically attacked” by at least three people, slammed into the hood of a car and knocked to the ground, Commissioner of Public Safety James Montagnino said during a news conference Sunday.

One of the other individuals in the group then drew a handgun and pointed it in the deputy’s direction and began firing. The deputy brandished his own handgun, and shots were exchanged, Montagnino said. 

Montagnino said he believed seven or eight shots were exchanged in the gunfight, and the deputy shot the Utica man who drew his weapon.
