Two men suspected in the shooting death of a Florida Highway Patrol trooper are behind bars today.

Florida Highway Patrol officials say around 4:30 Friday morning SGT Nicholas Sottile observed a car driving erratically and pulled the driver over.

Officials say as Sottile approached the vehicle, the passenger fled on foot.

Police say Sottile went back to his patrol car to call for backup and then began walking toward the suspects' car when the driver shot him in the chest.
