Monroe County sheriff’s deputies following up on a burglary investigation Thursday morning were shot at from a home in Key Largo, police said.
At 11 a.m., hostage negotiators were trying to make contact with the man at mile marker 102 of U.S. 1.
Dozens of sheriff’s office cars, as well as ones from the U.S. Border Patrol and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, lined U.S.1 as heavily armed members of the sheriff’s office tactical team arrived around noon in the parking lot of Coral Financial Jewelry and Pawn.
Deputies blocked access to Mahogany Drive and Lime Drive and evacuated the immediate area after a single gunshot was fired at detectives at about 10:15 a.m., said Adam Linhardt, the spokesman for the sheriff’s office.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
One shot was fired from inside the trailer, through a window, to where detectives were located, Linhardt said.
Detectives were at the trailer — located behind a pawn shop — as part of a burglary investigation.
No injuries have been reported, Linhardt said, and the man remained barricaded inside the trailer.
“The sheriff’s office is responding with the appropriate resources to resolve the situation,” Linhardt said.
