Police said they noticed a garage door was left open. They cleared the residence and when they came out of the house, they heard a shot fired.

The body camera video starts just before officers hear the gunshot and shows officers move towards the area.

A man, later identified as Joseph Jaynes, 25, was located near 1616 Piccadilly Drive. Police say he was armed with a rifle and a flashlight.

Young said Jaynes then got into a standoff with officers and was shot in the leg.

In the video, Jaynes randomly opens fire on officers. Chief Young said five officers fired shots back at Jaynes.

None of the officers were injured in the shooting.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) will investigate the shooting. In the meantime, the officers involved will be placed on paid administrative leave per department policy.

Young said Jaynes called 911 for his injuries and the operators were able to connect him to hostage negotiators.

The body camera video ends with an aerial view of officers surrounding Jaynes as he sat on the ground injured from the apparent gunshot wound to his leg.

Jaynes was taken to a hospital for his injuries. Once he’s been cleared from the hospital, Jaynes will be booked at Volusia County Jail on 10 felony counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

According to Young, this was the third trip officers had made to the address over the weekend.

Young said two roommates got into a dispute, and one of the roommates shot at the other.

The other roommate was arrested on Sunday.
