A Taylor County (Fla.) Sheriff's deputy getting his car fixed at the Timberland Ford dealership jumped into action after a man crashed through the front of the business with his vehicle and opened fire, said Gretl Plessinger, spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Gunfire was then exchanged between Deputy Robert Lundy and the man, 51-year-old Earl Edward Clague Jr. of Taylor County, who was killed, reports Tallahassee.com.

Clague, a current employee at the dealership at the time of the shooting, was using a semi-automatic shotgun, according to Plessinger.

Lundy underwent surgery this morning and is currently recovering and is in stable but critical condition. He and two others that were shot are expected to survive, Plessinger said.
