TURNER, Ore. —

Authorities in Marion County, Ore., say a deputy sheriff who awakened a man sleeping in a car near an Interstate 5 overpass shot the man after a confrontation.

Edmonds, Wash., police detectives believe it's the same man responsible for a Tuesday home invasion robbery in their north Seattle suburb.

KOMO-TV in Seattle reports (http://is.gd/NjMEuh) that a 48-year-old man accused of robbing an Edmonds woman was later tracked down and chased by Port of Seattle police but managed to get away.

The Marion County sheriff's office says deputies had been sent Friday morning to check on a report a man was slumped over the wheel of a vehicle.

The sheriff's office said the man was expected to survive a leg wound, and no deputies were hurt.

KOMO reports the man who was shot was driving a stolen car.
