A Marion County, Ore., Sheriff's deputy is in fair condition after being wounded in a gunfight with a man in a rural area Friday. The suspect was also wounded.

The case began around 9 a.m. Friday when deputies were pursuing a man in a stolen car, Marion County Sgt. Chris Baldridge told KOIN TV Saturday morning. But the deputies lost sight of the vehicle after a while.

Later, they found the car. But after an "intensive search" was about to wrap up, Baldridge said, the suspect spotted a deputy and opened fire.

Dep. Jim Buchholz was hit by a shot and retreated to cover. Baldridge said he began treating his own wound and immediately called for help.

Good to hear that this Deputy did not give up the fight, and kept his head. I hope you heal quickly and get back out there and fight the good fight.

Wishing you a speedy recovery, and good job done. May you, your family, and department colleagues have a Merry Christmas, and Happier New Year. God Bless you Deputy, and all Brothers/Sisters in Blue.
