A Lauderdale County (AL) Sheriff's deputy was shot in the city of Florence Wednesday evening.  Randall McCrary was flown to Huntsville Hospital, where he underwent surgery and is in intensive care.

The shooting happened about 6 p.m. north of the campus of the University of North Alabama.

The suspect, Timothy Vincent Murphy, was also shot and taken to Huntsville Hospital. He had surgery and is recovering, and is expected to survive, WHNT TV reports.
