A Bossier Parish Deputy was shot in the arm this afternoon near Benton.
The Times reports that The deputy, who has not been identified, was helping two other deputies try to arrest an attempted rape suspect in north Bossier Parish, said Ed Baswell, Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman.
The shooting comes four days after a Shreveport police officer was shot while trying to stop a bank robbery suspect.
The deputies talked to the suspect, Robert Sellers, before trying to rush and stun him with a Taserhim, Baswell said.
The Taser apparently didn't work, because Sellers allegedly was able to grab a .22-caliber bolt action rifle and squeeze off a shot.
The bullet went through the deputie's arm and into the ceiling of the suspect's home. The three deputy helped overpower Sellers before going to WK Bossier for treatment of the injury.
