GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Guilford County Sheriff's Office says a deputy was shot while serving a criminal warrant to a suspect on Tuesday morning.

Poag said deputies knocked on Tisdale's door, and he started firing through the front and back doors of his home, multiple times.

Deputies ordered Tisdale to come outside, and he surrendered. Deputies never fired any shots back.

Poag said the deputy who was hit with a bullet is in stable condition at the hospital, with non-life threatening injuries.

This is the third time this year that a Guilford County deputy has been shot.
