Suspect Injured In Escambia County Officer Involved Shooting

May 13, 2019

An officer involved shooting Sunday in Escambia County is under investigation.

About 11 a.m., Escambia County Sheriff’s Office uniformed deputies arrived at the 1200-block of Albuquerque Circle to serve a felony warrant on a battery strangulation suspect.

After deputies arrived,  the suspect tried exiting the building through a bathroom window. The suspect ignored several commands given by deputies to show his hands and  appeared to reach towards something before  shots were fired, according to a statement from the ECSO.

The suspect, who has not yet been named, was struck in the right shoulder and taken to a local hospital. No deputies were injured.

As is standard procedure,  the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating.

    He is now living on borrowed time. Might be a good time to get his life right.
