ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A deputy is on administrative duty after he shot an armed suicidal woman in Orlando.
Orange County Sheriff's officials evacuated several businesses on Saturday after an armed woman barricaded herself inside a pub.
The deputy said he introduced himself to the woman and that she pointed a gun at him. The deputy fired at the woman, hitting her in the shoulder. She fled into a pub and refused to come out.
Deputies spoke to her for nearly an hour. She eventually relented and was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Authorities said the woman may have been upset because her dog was at the vet and had to be put to sleep.
