Richardson County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Nincehelser is recovering well from a gunshot wound suffered in an early Monday morning shootout just off Highway 75, about four miles north of the intersection of Highways 4 and 75.
Deputy Nincehelser, 25, of Humboldt, was on routine patrol at approximately 2 a.m. when he encountered a silver or tan Dodge Neon with no license plates stopped on 717 Road, approximately one-fourth of a mile west of Hwy. 75. Nincehelser approached the vehicle to ask the driver, a hispanic male, if he needed assistance. The driver did not speak English and as the deputy was attempting to communicate, the man produced a silver semi-automatic pistol and fired at least three shots at the officer, hitting him in the bicep.
Nincehelser returned fire – five shots – as the gunman sped away. The deputy gave chase for about four miles before realizing he’d been shot.
The gunman remained at large as of 10:30 p.m. Monday, though social networking sites were abuzz with reports that the shooter’s Dodge Neon was recovered in Salem in the early evening hours Monday.
