TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Officials say a tribe police officer shot and wounded a man during an altercation at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tampa.
A tribe spokesman says the man took a maintenance golf cart parked in the casino's parking lot and ran over the officer. The injured officer then shot the suspect.
The officer and suspect were taken to a Tampa hospital. Neither has been named. No conditions were immediately available.
The tribe spokesman says the suspect was not a patron of the hotel or casino.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is taking over the criminal investigation. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate the shooting.
