Florida suspect killed by police after shooting at officers


Florida authorities say a suspect was shot dead by police after he opened fire on officers serving a warrant for his arrest

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — A Florida suspect was shot dead by police after he opened fire on officers serving a warrant for his arrest, officials said.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri said one of the officers was shot in the chest but was wearing his bulletproof vest and was expected to recover soon. Another officer tripped running around in the shootout and injured his head.

The suspect was 44-year-old Michael Harris, who was wanted in connection with a shooting involving a woman earlier this month.

Capri told reporters at a press conference that it was unfortunate that police had to take a life, but said “the suspect dictated that.”

“The suspected fired at officers first, and we defended ourselves. And I can tell you if you pull a gun on a police officer to shoot a police officer you are going to get killed. As simple as that,” Capri said.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shootout.
