Largo Police say a home invasion suspect is still on the loose, but possibly injured after exchanging gunfire with an officer.
Police were attempting to apprehend 19-year-old Terry Lamar James at a residence on Thursday night in the 6300 block of 144th Street North. Police say James tried fleeing from the home, when he made contact with a Largo Police Officer. During their brief encounter, police say both the officer and James shot at each other.
The officer was unharmed, but the suspect was able to get away. It is not clear at this time if James was injured.
Following the shooting, the officer has been placed on administrative leave, as dictated by policy.
Police consider James to be armed and dangerous. He is wanted in connection to two home invasion robberies that happened in Largo.
Anyone with knowledge of James’ whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Arlington of the Largo Police Department at 727-587-6730.
