Orlando police fatally shoot armed robbery suspect

ORLANDO — Police officers fatally shot a suspected arm robber at an Orlando apartment complex.

Orlando police Sgt. Vince Ogburn says officers responded to Camden Reserve apartments about 9 p.m. Wednesday after someone reported a robbery in the parking lot.

The Orlando Sentinel reports officers saw the suspect shoot at a robbery victim. Ogburn says one or more officers exchanged gunfire with one of the suspects, killing him. The other suspect ran away.

Authorities say no one else was hurt.

The names of the victims or the suspects have not been released.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating, which is standard procedure in a police-involved shooting.
