According to the report, deputies quickly entered and removed the mother and son from the home and found Nollie Dean, 41, barricaded in a room.

Deputies left the home and set up a perimeter around the home while NCSO’s Special Response Team and negotiators responded.

After more than four hours of trying to negotiate with Dean, deputies say he broke a window out and pointed a rifle and fired towards deputies, striking the special response vehicle.

Deputies fired at the suspect, hit him and he was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

According to NCSO, Dean was a prior convicted felon. He was booked into Nassau County jail on charges of aggravated assault on a police officer and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
