    A man who was shot when deputies say he tried to break down the door of a woman's home, is facing warrants accusing him of trying to kill a deputy and trying to run him over.

    Two deputies fired at Michael Terrell McCray, 27, and struck him in the abdomen during the officer-involved shooting Sunday west of Sour Lake.

    The Sheriff's Office had responded to a domestic violence call at a home on Atlantic Road. Investigators say McCray tried to run over one deputy and struck his patrol vehicle.

    The suspect drove away on Highway 105 and then returned to the home.

    Two deputies opened fire when they say McCray tried to break down the door of a home with a woman and four children inside.

    He was struck in the abdomen. A 4-year-old girl was struck in the leg. She has been released from a hospital.

    McCray is in a hospital. He's held under the following warrants issued by Hardin County Justice of the Peace T.J. Hall:

    Attempted Capital Murder of Peace Officer - 1st Degree Felony

    Evading Arrest with a Motor Vehicle - State Jail Felony

    Violation of a Protective Order - Class A Misdemeanor

    Sheriff Mark Davis anticipates more charges in the coming days as this investigation continues.

    The mugshot is from a prior arrest in September 2018 for Assault Family Violence.
