HUMBOLDT, Neb. -- Law enforcement agencies are combing southeast Nebraska, looking for a car carrying someone who shot a sheriff's deputy. The shooting happened about 2:45 a.m. Monday on Richardson County Road 717 near U.S. Highway 75, northeast of Humboldt. Richardson County Sheriff Randy Houser says the deputy had noticed a stopped car, so he approached to offer help to the people inside. Houser says several shots were fired from inside the vehicle, which then sped away. The deputy gave a chase but soon stopped when he noticed that one of his arms had been hit by a bullet. KFOR's media partner, 10/11 News, is reporting that the deputy, Josh Nincehelser, is recovering at a Lincoln hospital. The Nebraska State Patrol and other agencies are still looking for the suspect, described as a non-English speaking Hispanic man, driving either a silver or tan Dodge Neon.
