A deputy with the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office shot a man Monday in Billings after the man allegedly rammed a police car with a vehicle and then hit the deputy while the deputy was on foot, Sheriff Mike Linder said Tuesday.

The alleged assault and shooting happened after law enforcement tried to recover a suspected stolen vehicle shortly after 4 p.m. at the Town Pump at King Avenue West and 32nd Street West.

Linder said the deputy was treated at an area hospital, but that he was unaware of any injuries to the deputy.
