Sentencing has been delayed for a 26-year-old York man convicted for exchanging gunfire with a York County sheriff's deputy in August.

At a hearing Tuesday, a prosecutor asked for a delay so the judge would have time to review certain pieces of evidence that were supposed to have been included in a presentence report on Max McCall.

McCall pleaded no contest in November to charges of attempted first-degree assault on an officer, flight to avoid arrest and use of a firearm to commit a felony. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dropped three other charges.

According to York County officials, the deputy was responding to a domestic violence report on Aug. 11 when he spotted McCall in his vehicle and ended up in a short pursuit that ended when McCall's vehicle went into a ditch.

Authorities say McCall then fired twice at the deputy but missed. The deputy shot back, hitting McCall twice.

Sentencing was rescheduled to Jan. 28.
