FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a Central California sheriff's deputy was saved from a gunshot wound by his pocket knife.
The unidentified Fresno County deputy was responding to a call of shots fired on Sunday evening when a bullet flew toward him.
Instead of hitting the deputy, Lt. Gregg Andreotti tells the Fresno Bee (http://bit.ly/JVIclB) it ricocheted off the deputy's knife, leaving him with just a bruise.
Sheriff's officials found weapons and ammunition in the backyard of a nearby home and detained several people for questioning.
