Three Police Officers are Shot in Standoff

LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP) — Three Florida police officers are doing well after they were shot during a standoff.

Lake City Sgt. Jason Byrd was hospitalized in good condition Saturday. Police investigator David Greear and Officer Mitchell Cline were already back home.

The three were wounded after authorities say a man opened fire outside his Florida home Friday as police responded to a domestic violence complaint. The suspect later barricaded himself inside and committed suicide.

The Florida Times-Union reported the couple had a pending divorce.

Lake City is about 60 miles west of Jacksonville.
