A man who was shot by a Loudoun County Sheriff's deputy is in life-threatening condition at an area hospital.
Deputies responded to a home in the 1100 block of Albemarle Road around 4 p.m. for reports of a disorderly person, who had apparently brandished a large knife and was threatening family members outside a home.
"We heard the three shots, cop cars were coming up by the dozen," neighbor John Kurzeja said.
"When we showed up to the scene -- and everything is preliminary right now -- what we understand is that the individual went inside, came out with an unknown handgun, pointed it at the deputies then one of our deputies shot him," Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman said.
The shooting victim was airlifted to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
"It's my older brother, I love him dearly, he's a good person. I have no further statement," a man named John told News4's Shomari Stone.
