Salt Creek Fire Capt. Robert Allen said the patient was transported to Wise Health System in Decatur with non-life threatening injuries.

The victim was treated and released Monday afternoon, Johnson said.

The incident happened shortly after 10:30 a.m. As of press time, the suspect is still at large.

A DPS helicopter was dispatched to aid officers from multiple agencies in the search for the suspect.
