Officer-Involved Shooting In West Palm Beach

A suspect was shot by police in West Palm Beach early Monday morning.  

Two officers were responding to a call of a suspicious vehicle at Palmetto Park, in an area east of I-95 and north of Forest Hill Boulevard when they found two people inside the car.  

Cops say the suspects reversed the vehicle and backed into a police cruiser.  That's when the police department says the officers opened fire for fear of their lives.  One suspect was shot and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  The other suspect was immediately taken into custody. 

Investigators found a gun inside the vehicle. The officers were not injured and have been placed on paid leave, pending the investigation, which is protocol.  

The FDLE is investigating.
