A police officer was fatally shot in Tarpon Springs, Fla., early Sunday morning. The suspect, a male, is in police custody.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will hold a press conference later on Sunday.
This shooting comes as NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were killed execution-style by Ismaaiyl Brinsley as they sat in their squad car in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section on Brooklyn on Sunday.
Brinsley had left hints on Instagram about his intentions to avenge the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
