first_imgVOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. – One person was killed and a Daytona Beach police officer was shot in the chest in a firefight on Saturday, as seen on his body cam video.Police said fortunately the officer who was shot will be OK because he was wearing a bulletproof vest, while the suspect died.Daytona Beach police Chief Craig Capri told reporters they were called out to an apartment complex after an anonymous tip that an attempted murder suspect was spotted there.“The suspect fled into a back bedroom,” Capri said. “The officers follow the suspect, ordering him to freeze, halt, surrender. As the officer opened the door, the suspect took a firearm and shot at our officers.”Capri said they were serving an arrest warrant on the man police believe shot a woman twice in the back two weeks ago.Another officer sustained a head injury when he tripped and fell while shots were fired. He is expected to be OK.Extremely grateful that both @DaytonaBchPD officers that were injured during today’s shooting will not only survive but are expected to fully recover. The good Lord covered them with his grace and mercy today. — Deputy Chief Jakari Young (@ChiefJakari) August 30, 2020last_img
