Barricaded Suspect

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Orlando SWAT team members reportedly shot
and killed an armed man who had barricaded himself, four children
and another adult in a downtown home.

Police say 36-year-old Palin Perez was shot Tuesday afternoon
when he came out of the house holding a gun. A spokeswoman says the suspect was told to come out of the house with his hands up and
with no firearms but disregarded those instructions.

No injuries were reported for the other adult in the home or the
children.

Department of Children and Families workers were helping
the children.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate the
officer-involved shooting.
