Officials say a tribe police officer shot and wounded a man during an altercation at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tampa.
Tribe spokesman Gary Bitner says the man took a maintenance golf cart parked in the casino's parking lot and ran over the officer. The injured officer then shot the suspect.
The officer and suspect were taken to a Tampa hospital. Neither has been named. Bitner said the suspect is in critical but stable condition. He says the officer has multiple injuries but is in good condition.
The tribe spokesman says the suspect was not a patron of the
hotel or casino.
The Seminole Tribe Police Department is handling the criminal investigation. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate the shooting.
