    Dashcam video obtained Friday shows a dramatic shootout between a robbery suspect and a Monroe County, Florida, Sheriff's Deputy last month.

    The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said Timothy Thomas, 25, is accused of firing a gun at Deputy Joshua Gordon on Oct. 24, following a chase on Stock Island.  

    Deputies had been searching for Thomas in connection with a robbery. The deputy was shot in the chest as he tried to apprehend Thomas. Authorities said Gordon was wearing a bulletproof vest and wasn't injured.

    Officials said Thomas fled and was captured Oct. 25 hiding in a Key West house. They said he had suffered two gunshot wounds. He was hospitalized and later released. 

    Deputies said Thomas has outstanding warrants from Orange and Martin counties.

    He's being held without bond. It's not clear whether he has an attorney to contact for comment on the case.
