HILL COUNTY -- An elderly man shot by a Hill County Sheriff's Deputy last week has died from his injuries.

84-year-old Monte Moore underwent two surgeries at a Fort Worth hospital after he was shot by a sheriff's deputy during an altercation near Lake Whitney on February 7.

Deputy Emily Wright was responding to a report of a man in someone's attic when Moore approached her on the front porch carrying a 22-caliber pump-style rifle.

Wright was able to disarm him but he attacked her several times.

She was treated for cuts and bruises at a local hospital and has since been released.
