According to Tallahassee Police, TPD was in the area of 1700 Joe Louis St. around 3 a.m. Thursday when they observed a male walking out of the woods. Police say, because of the time of night, the officer attempted to talk to the male. The male fled and the officer followed him into the yard of a residence.

According to Tallahassee Police Spokesperson Dave Northway, it appears at this time that the suspect turned and fired at the officer, and the officer returned fire. The suspect continued to flee but officers were able to take him into custody.

The suspect had a minor injury but it is unknown at this time if the injury is related to this incident or an earlier injury. The suspect is at a local hospital.

The officer has been placed on administrative leave, which is department policy. No bystanders or officers were injured in this incident.

This is the fourth TPD involved shooting in the last six weeks.

We will provide more details as they become available.
