Douglas County Sheriff's Office has released body camera footage of a deputy-involved shooting.

Deputy Brad Proulx was trying to help who he thought was a stranded driver on County Line Road in Littleton. As Deputy Proulx walked around to the driver's side of the vehicle, the driver got out of the car with an AR-15 type rifle and swung it toward him.

In response, Deputy Proulx fired two shots. One hit the suspect, and the other hit the suspect's vehicle.

After the shooting, suspect 25-year-old Deyon Rivas-Maestas was treated at a nearby hospital. He now faces first degree assault charges.

Deputy Proulx was not injured in the incident. Investigators say the rifle wasn't loaded. Littleton Police Department is now handling the investigation.
