SANFORD, NC (WNCN) – Two Lee County deputies were taken to the hospital after a shooting involving a suspect Thursday afternoon, the sheriff’s office said.

MPs responded to an emergency call just after 4 p.m. Thursday.

The caller said her husband assaulted her, broke her phone and took her car keys, a press release said. She fled the apartment.

Deputies responded to the residence along the 5500 block of Olivia Road in Sanford and attempted to get suspect Saheem William to leave, a press release said.

Williams didn’t comply. Instead, he began shooting MPs from inside the house.

The deputies exchanged gunfire with him, and two were injured, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said.

Two deputies were taken to Central Carolina Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

After the standoff, Williams threw a gun out the window and exited the residence.
