Three law enforcement officers were shot in St. Petersburg this morning.
ABC Action News reporter Don Germaise is on the scene and says two of the officers are with the St. Petersburg Police Department. The third is a U.S. Marshal.
Germaise describes the situation as “highly fluid.” Multiple shots have been heard throughout the morning.
The shootings occurred around 7:45 a.m. at a home in the 3700 block of 28th Avenue South.
The gunfire broke out while the officers were attempting to serve a warrant. According to a police spokesman, the officers were met at the front door by the suspect’s girlfriend who said he was in the attic. They went to the attic and the suspect came out firing. Two of the officers managed to get out of the house.
