WINTER HAVEN, Fla. —

A newspaper deliveryman in central Florida shot and wounded a man he says shot at him first.

Winter Haven police say a man and woman were delivering copies of the Ledger around 3 a.m. Sunday when they noticed a car following them.

When the carriers stopped their truck, police say the car's driver, 23-year-old by Brian Scott Dickey II, approached and fired four shots. When Dickey began banging on the window with his gun, the deliveryman pulled his registered gun and fired through the window.

Police say Dickey fled the scene, but rescuers were soon called to his home nearby. He is recovering at a hospital and police say once he's released, he will be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm in public.

It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
