I wonder whether the unnamed suspect would be dead if had not shot the unnamed deputy.

Maybe..if they had been able to MEET VIOLENCE WITH VIOLENCE in the first place, they would not be in the dire situation they are in now. May God grant them a full recovery...and the ability to lead a productive life, as stated before.

People claim that policing isn't a dangerous job, that more people die in other occupations. That may be so, but the one thing those other jobs don't have is the unpredictable nature of dealing with people. If you fall off a ladder, most likely that was something that could have been avoided. As a police officer you may be dealing with a person who is smiling at you one minute and trying to kill you the next. I pray the officer who was shot recovers and is able to lead a productive life.
