LAKE MARY, Fla. -- Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and Lake Mary Police Department report they’re investigating a Lake Mary police-involved shooting Tuesday night, where a man was shot and killed.
- Officers shoot, kill man from suspected road rage incident
- Man allegedly brandished weapon, officers then shot at him
- None of the officers involved were injured
According to Lake Mary PD dispatch, the apparent shooting began at Lake Emerald and Lake Mary Boulevard.
SCSO's Public Information Officer Kim Cannaday says the shooting stemmed from a road rage incident and ended at Jeremiah's Italian Ice off Lake Mary Boulevard.
A caller reported a driver in a white SUV in the alleged road rage incident to police. Responding police officers found a vehicle that matched the description of what was provided, which led them to the parking lot outside Jeremiah's.
“Lake Mary police arrived on scene very quickly. They tried to get the individual to come out of the vehicle,” Cannaday said.
But when the man came out of the vehicle, he allegedly brandished a weapon, and officers fired shots.
Police say the suspect was killed. It's unclear at this time if the man ever fired any shots at the police.
Authorities say none of the officers involved were hurt.
All three officers be placed on paid leave while FDLE investigates, which is protocol in officer- involved shootings.
