VIDEO: Iowa Deputy Shot, Injured by Inmate at Hospital

The Fayette County (Iowa) Sheriff's Office says an inmate who was supposed to receive treatment for medical issues instead tried to escape from custody. Sheriff Marty Fisher told KWWL the escape attempt ended when the inmate grabbed a deputy's gun, shot the deputy, then turned the gun on himself. The inmate died. The deputy was not hurt seriously as the bullet struck his ballistic vest.
