A sheriff’s deputy was in critical condition Thursday after being shot in the head while attempting to serve a warrant at an apartment building in Texas, authorities said. A suspect was in custody.

The deputy and another officer had entered a Dollar General store in La Grange to serve a felony warrant to a man who failed to register as a sex offender, the La Grange Police Department said.

Deputies used a stun gun on the suspect after he resisted arrest, La Grange Police Chief David Gilbreath said. During the confrontation, the suspect cut one officer’s hand with a buck knife, then escaped to his apartment and barricaded himself inside.

Deputies followed the suspect to the apartment to try serving the warrant again, but were immediately fired upon, FOX 7 Austin reported. One deputy was shot in the head.
