At Least One Officer Dead After Two Police Shootings in Florida

The shooting death of officer Baxter is the first time a Kissimmee police officer has been killed on the job since 1983, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

O'Dell says Baxter passed on later in a healing center, and Howard was in genuine condition. Soon afterward, a 9-1-1 call came in, saying the officers had been shot, O'Dell said. Nearly lost in the narrative about the violence in Charlottesville is that two police officers lost their lives when their helicopter crashed. "May Matthew's service and the service of our law enforcement community be a constant reminder of the sacrifice of those who serve to keep us safe". O'Dell said the department hasn't "experienced this in over 25 years". Miller started reaching toward his waistband when the deputies tackled and subdued him, O'Dell said.

The area is known for high drug activity, the chief said.

Three suspects are in police custody, with one possible suspect still at large.

The second officer, Howard, was in "grave, critical" condition at Osceola Regional Hospital on Saturday but later passed away.

"It's grave. Not much hope that he will survive this", the police chief said. The fourth person is reported to be still at large.

Baxter, 27, was married to a fellow Kissimmee police officer and had four children.
