OCALA, Fla. (AP) – A man has been charged after a nurse was shot and wounded at an Ocala hospital.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers took 38-year-old Jason Ronald Gignac of Summerfield to West Marion Community Hospital in Ocala on Saturday after finding him walking along a highway.

Authorities have said Gignac grabbed one trooper’s gun and fired, wounding a nurse in the leg.

Three troopers also suffered minor injuries while struggling with Gignac.

Marion County jail records show Gignac was charged Sunday with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting a law enforcement officer with violence. He is being held without bond.

Gignac’s mother, Rachael Delannoy, told WFTV  that her son has a drug problem and he had a fight with his girlfriend Saturday morning before leaving her house without shoes.
