Because Hodge’s vehicle was still at the address, officers checked around the outside to make sure that the victim and her daughter were safe. While doing this, two officers found Hodge in a detached shed, armed with a rifle. Hodge ran toward the officers and fired multiple times. The officers took cover and alerted other officers that shots had been fired. Multiple officers arrived soon after to provide assistance. When they arrived, Hodge began firing upon them, striking one officer several times. The injured officer fired back, and, under suppressive fire from other officers was pulled to safety and rushed by police car to an area hospital.
