The shooting occurred about 6:30 a.m. Thursday in the parking lot of a Horn Lake apartment complex as the deputy, Angela White, was getting out of her car. White was transported to Baptist DeSoto Hospital.

The gun, which was inside her purse, fired and the bullet hit the deputy in the side. Investigators said she apparently dropped her purse and the gun fell out of the purse onto the pavement.

Evans says the scene was unsecured after the shooting, and by the time police arrived, the gun was missing.
