Authorities in Ohio say a sheriff's deputy is in critical condition and a suspect is dead after gunfire was exchanged following attempted traffic stop.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the Franklin County deputy was shot shortly before 7 p.m. Saturday in Columbus after the deputy tried to stop a pickup truck and the driver fled. After a six-minute pursuit, the truck crashed in front of a gas station and shots were fired.

Sheriff's office spokesman Marc Gofstein didn't say why the deputy tried to stop the truck.

He says the deputy is having surgery at a hospital and is expected to survive.

No names were released.
