EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - A plea deal is being negotiated for an Eau Claire man accused of shooting an assault rifle at a sheriff's deputy several times, before he was shot back.  

47-year-old Paul Lynch had pleaded insanity to Eau Claire County charges of attempted homicide, shooting while intoxicated, disorderly conduct, and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

Tuesday, Lynch's attorney said two psychological tests of his client both came up negative. As a result, he most likely will not be able to use an insanity defense.  

Authorities said Lynch had threatened a female landlord after she told him to leave for violating her house rules -- and when officers responded, Lynch exchanged gunfire with a deputy who shot him.

Lynch is jailed under a $25,000 cash bond. He's due back in court July 14th, when the status of his case will be reviewed.
