From WPTV: There was a Martin County Sheriff’s Office deputy-involved shooting  along Lost River Road near Kanner Highway and I-95 Tuesday afternoon.

At a late-afternoon news conference Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said the shooting happened on the east side of a Marriott hotel during a felony narcotics investigation.

“The subject, rather than cooperate with law enforcement at the time of the arrest, chose instead to ram his vehicle into several of our vehicles, drove at one of our deputies, is what it appears to be now, and they did open fire on him in what initially does appear to be an act of self defense,” said Sheriff Snyder.
