DELAFIELD, Wis. -

A Waukesha County sheriff's deputy has shot a man inside a Delafield home.

The Sheriff's Office said it got a call at 1:50 p.m. Tuesday from a woman in the house. She said a 31-year-old relative of hers was suicidal and had a shotgun. She said he had fired at least one shot.

When deputies arrived, they ordered the man to drop the shotgun. The Sheriff's Office said when he refused, a deputy shot him.

The man was taken to Froedtert Hospital. His condition is unknown.

WISN-TV reported the woman in the home and the deputy, a 22-year veteran of the force, were not hurt.

Walworth County will investigate the case.
