MAN WHO SHOT 15 PEOPLE AT A TENNESSEE KROGER WAS A THIRD-PARTY VENDOR, POLICE SAY
During a news conference on Tuesday, Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolón told FOX 35 Orlando that three individuals on a sidewalk were approached by officers. Shots were fired between the two parties but it is not clear yet who fired first. Multiple rounds hit the officer’s vehicle and multiple rounds were fired back from inside the patrol car.
"We are very fortunate not to be speaking about an officer-involved shooting where we may have lost one of our officers in this incident," he said. "We’re kind of puzzled as to how this happened. Again, the officers simply pulled up, as they tried to make contact, before they could get out of their car, there are shots that went into that vehicle that they were in."
