BROCKPORT, N.Y. (AP) — Police say an upstate New York man firing shots from his second-floor window injured a neighbor and a responding police officer before surrendering.

Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn says the man began shooting randomly from the house early Friday afternoon. That was hours after a dispute with his partner.

A male deputy was hit in the leg and a female across the street was hit in the shoulder. Both were hospitalized with injuries not considered life threatening.

Police say a woman who lived with the gunman and their two children were not in the house. A negotiator eventually coaxed the man outside.

The shooting briefly caused a lockdown at the nearby state university in Brockport.
