ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A suspect was apprehended after an officer-involved shooting that ended in Ocoee, police said.
It happened just before 8 p.m., when officers in an unmarked car spotted a car that was reported stolen and called for assistance, police said.
The suspect vehicle continued driving outside city limits as other units were responding to assist.
Shortly after, the suspect inside the vehicle shot at the unmarked vehicle in the 4500 block of Jim Glenn Drive, hitting the officer’s unmarked vehicle. An officer returned fire, and an authorized vehicle pursuit ensued, according to police.
Partnering agencies assisted, and the vehicle pursuit ended in Ocoee where the suspect was apprehended without further incident, police said.
Neither officer nor the suspect was injured during the gunfire, police said.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement will conduct an independent investigation of the officer-involved shooting and turn its findings over to the State Attorney Office, then Orlando police will conduct its own investigation.
