The man who shot officers in the province of Escambia was shot dead by lawmakers.
The Escampia County Mayor’s Office says MPs were called to Johnson Beach around 12:30 p.m. For a man threatening suicide.
Upon arrival, Representatives find the man with a pistol ashore at 1,300 Block Sandy Key Drive.
“The MPs tried to speak to the man, and at that time the MPs were shot,” ECSO says in a statement.
The MPs responded by shooting the man. None of the officers were injured.
“The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is responding to the site in order to investigate the officer involved in the shooting in accordance with normal protocol,” the statement said.
Representatives have not yet identified the deceased suspect.
