WATCH: Deputy pulls shooting victim to safety

-
A Florida man has been taken into custody after authorities say he shot his wife before firing at deputies.
 
The wife underwent surgery after a domestic dispute ended with her getting shot in the leg.  Her husband, 26-year-old Emmanuel Rosado, of Deltona, was arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree attempted murder.

Volusia County Sheriff's Office spokesman Gary Davidson says Rosado's wife had been trying to separate from her husband when he went to a home where she was, locking her inside.  Three children, between the ages of 23 months to 7 years, were also inside the house.

Deputies on Sunday rushed to the home on Alameda Drive in Deltona.  When they arrived, they said they heard gunshots and someone inside the home screamed twice, "You're gonna die today!"

Deputies said they took cover behind a planter in the yard.  That's when the shots came out of the home and toward deputies, who returned fire.  Rosado wasn't hit and later surrendered.

In video recorded by one of the responding deputy's body camera, you can see a dramatic rescue.  Deputy Justin Ferrari, who heard gunshots, ran to help his fellow deputies and ultimately carried the shooting victim -- and later,  her children -- to safety.   The video was posted on the Facebook page of the Sheriff's Office.  

"When we say law enforcement officers run toward danger as others run away, this is what we're talking about," read language accompanying the video.

The woman is expected to make a full recovery.
