A burglary suspect is dead after a police-involved shooting at an apartment complex near Kirkman and Conroy Roads. Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolon says the FDLE will investigate exactly what happened Tuesday afternoon.
Chief Rolon says officers were investigating a burglary and a stolen vehicle when the suspect saw the police and made a run for it. The chief says there was a confrontation and police opened fire, killing the suspect. Three officers are now on leave and the FDLE is taking charge of the investigation.
Chief Rolon says the dangerous situation could have been avoided had the suspect surrendered.
