Officer kills gunman who had just shot woman


LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — A Florida police officer fatally shot a man seconds after the man had shot a woman, leaving her gravely injured, authorities said.
Lakeland Police Chief Ruben Garcia said his three of his officers went to a condominium complex about 6:30 a.m. after a 911 caller reported a domestic argument.
When the officers arrived, they found the man and woman in the parking lot. The man shot the woman and an officer then fatally shot the gunman, Garcia said.
The woman was taken to the hospital, where she was in grave condition, Garcia said. The woman’s young adult daughter witnessed the shooting, he said.
Garcia said the man and woman had a relationship, but it was unclear if he lived at the condo with her.
Further details were not immediately released, including the names of the gunman, woman or officer.
