A gunfire alert and a 911 call about domestic violence ended with a Fort Lauderdale cop shooting a suspect Sunday morning, Fort Lauderdale police say.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate the shooting — as is standard.
Fort Lauderdale police say the ShotSpotter alert for the 1000 block of Northwest Sixth Avenue and the domestic violence call for a home in the 1100 block of Northwest Sixth Avenue came in Sunday at nearly the same time, 8:39 a.m. When officers arrived, they say a man began shooting at them.
An officer fired back and hit the suspect, then Det. Ali Adamson said, “quickly began to render livesaving aid until [Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue] arrived.”
The man is in stable condition after surgery.
