Escaped Inmate Shoots Deputy

NEW MARKET, Iowa (AP) -- Officers are scouring a section of Taylor County in southwest Iowa for an escaped inmate suspected of wounding a sheriff's deputy.
   The Iowa Department of Public Safety says the shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. Sunday on Iowa Highway 2 just east of New Market. A deputy was shot twice after he left his cruiser to check on a man walking along the highway. The man then took the deputy's vehicle and fled. Another deputy soon arrived, picked up the wounded officer and the two began chasing the stolen patrol car.
   The stolen cruiser rolled about 40 minutes later after a shot-filled pursuit. The man fled on foot.
   The department says officers are looking for the Rodney Long, who escaped the minimum-security prison facility in Clarinda on Friday morning.
