PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) --

Authorities say three north Florida sheriff's deputies, a woman and a suspect are being treated at a hospital after being shot in a domestic situation.

Authorities on Friday, October 29 said a suspect was in custody. They say the suspect forced his way into the woman's house and then shot her. They say she was his former girlfriend. Authorities have not
released any conditions.

A phone number listed for the home was not in service.

Gov. Charlie Crist canceled a scheduled Pensacola campaign stop
for his Senate bid and is going to the hospital where the officers
were taken.

Customers at a nearby grocery store, Apple Market Grocery, told
The Associated Press that police and the SWAT team, with guns,
surrounded the area after responding to a house call.
