After the shootout, Williams said, additional officers were able to rescue the two shot officers, apprehend the suspect, and attend to the four other people in the home: the suspect's 19-month-old child, his girlfriend, her mother and a family friend.

"We're talking about a gun battle within four or five feet of each other", said Williams. When officers arrived the suspect opened fire on them. The suspect was shot by police and died, JSO Director Mike Bruno said during a media briefing.

"There's not a lot that's designed that you could wear on a daily basis that does stop that, and these officers know that", he said.

They called 911 and gave police information as they were responding to the scene.

The Sheriff's Office continues to investigate, and is expected to provide an update sometime Saturday.
