Just before 3 pm today, the Kissimmee Police Department responded to 2250 N. Hoagland Ave. in the Villa Del Sol Apartments in Kissimmee in reference to a shooting.
Members of the Osceola County Investigative Bureau (OCIB) and Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) Tampa have been working together the last few weeks on a joint drug investigation concerning trafficking in illegal narcotics in Osceola County.
Through the course of the investigation, Undercover Agents arranged for the purchase of approximately 25 pounds of methamphetamine. The investigation identified suspects involved at two separate locations in Kissimmee, FL.
Two suspects were taken into custody without incident at 1701 Dyer Blvd. As Agents approached two additional suspects parked in the parking lot at Villa Del Sol, 2250 N. Hoagland Ave., it appears they were met with gunfire coming from inside the suspect vehicle, and the agents returned fire.
During the exchange of gunfire, an FDLE Tampa Agent was injured, is currently receiving medical attention at a local hospital, and appears to be in stable condition.
One suspect shot by law enforcement is receiving treatment at a local hospital and is reported to be in stable condition.
At the request of FDLE, the Kissimmee Police Department will investigate the Officer Involved Shooting incident and forward our findings to the State Attorney’s Office for review.
This is an ongoing investigation, and there is no additional information we can provide at this time.
