Ocala Man Shot Twice by Sheriff's Deputy in Stable Condition
An Ocala man who was shot twice by a sheriff's deputy is in stable condition.
The man -- who had been threatening to kill his wife and himself -- was shot after he pointed a gun at the deputy who arrived at the couple's home on Sunday evening.
He received two gunshout wounds to his upper body. No one else was injured in the incident.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the case to determine if the deputy's use of force was justified.
FDLE officials say the deputy is on paid administrative leave while the investigation is active.
The investigation will be completed within 30 to 45 days.
Then the Marion County Sheriff's office will conduct an internal affairs investigation.
