The shooting was reported in the same area where two people were arrested Wednesday for crawling into the pipe as a protest.

The armed suspect died during a shootout with sheriff’s deputies following a chase.

Deputies and the Florida Highway Patrol chased the man until he crashed near Floral City, 70 miles north of Tampa. Prendergast says the man got out and exchanged shots with deputies, who killed him. No deputies were hurt. Prendergast said other weapons were found in the car.

Prendergast issued a statement on the incident and its risk to the officers and the public: “We know that the suspect was armed and extremely dangerous, and pending the examination of the evidence at the scene, we will be able to determine what other weapons he had in his possession at the time of the shooting. Fortunately, none of our Citrus County Deputies, Marion County Deputies or Florida Highway Patrol Troopers were injured as a result of this crime.”
