An Oklahoma deputy has undergone surgery after being shot seven times during a standoff with a suspect Friday morning. 

Deputies with the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office surrounded a home at around 8 a.m. in response to a domestic-related call. The suspect retreated into his home and barricaded himself inside. 

The suspect, later identified as Braedon Chesser, 27, shot at the deputies, hitting one deputy seven times. 

Oklahoma authorities are still searching for Braedon Chesser, 27, seen here with and without a beard, after he shot a deputy 7 times Friday morning.
