ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- An Orange County Sheriff's deputy was fatally shot while responding to a car burglary call.
The shooting happened late Monday near Orlando.
Sheriff's Capt. Angelo Nieves says firefighters "made valiant efforts" to save the deputy. He was taken to a trauma center at Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Officials say the deputy attempted to question a suspect. The man shot the deputy. It was not clear whether there was an alteration before the shooting. The suspect fled and was later found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The deputy's name has not been released, but Sheriff Jerry L. Demings asked for prayers for the deputy's wife and three small children.
