Law enforcement swarmed the Green Acres area of Fort Walton Beach Sunday morning after shots were fired as deputies responded to reports of a suspicious vehicle.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were dispatched at approximately 8:40 a.m. to McLaren Circle to investigate a suspicious vehicle. Upon arrival, shots were fired but no deputies or other individuals were injured.

One individual was taken into custody, the sheriff’s office said.

No further details about the suspect or circumstances surrounding the incident have been released.

  1. Just curious, Okaloosa County Sheriff’s office does know that the bodycam footage was released in full to the public right? This just goes to show the lengths they will go to in order to try and cover up the fantastic jobs that their officers are doing. There was no suspicious vehicle, in fact, there was no vehicle at all, hence the reason they were called. Then trigger happy deputy Barney Fife unloads his entire clip on his own patrol car where the suspect in custody was handcuffed AFTER a patdown that cleared him of being in possession of ANY firearms or other weapons. While attempting to load yet another clip he yells he has been hit!!! Hit by what??? A stupid stick??? Oh Mylanta, help us all! I’m sending this shit in to SNL because it is pee my pants laugh worthy all the way around!
