Sheriff Joel Brott says two deputies were involved in the incident, which happened on a sidewalk outside the sheriff's department. One person was taken to the hospital following the shooting. Brott says the deputies were not hurt.

Investigators cordoned off an area around the sidewalk and a pickup truck in a nearby parking lot.
