WINTER PARK, Fla. - An officer shot a person armed with a gun Wednesday evening near Mead Botanical Garden, the Winter Park Police Department said.
Police said they were called at about 9:15 p.m. to a disturbance on Mead Avenue near Orange and South Orlando avenues. They didn't provide details of the disturbance.
Residents said they called 911 after hearing shouting coming from a home where a couple has lived for less than one year.
The person who was shot suffered non-life-threatening injuries, investigators said.
The officer was uninjured.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting, which is standard procedure.
