SANFORD, Fla. – Police say a man accused of exchanging gunfire with police in a busy central Florida intersection has been arrested.
Sanford Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett says authorities were called Friday evening after a man was spotted walking down U.S. Highway 17-92 and pointing a gun at vehicles.
Gillett says that when police spotted 27-year-old Roshad Smith, he began shooting at them and they returned fire.
Gillett tells the Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1KhxdBo ) that a bystander was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. She says police are still investigating how the bystander was hurt.
Police say Smith faces charges of attempted homicide, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and discharging a weapon in public.
Jail records don't show whether he has an attorney. His first court appearance is scheduled for Sunday morning.
