Shootings in two locations right around the corner from each other involving local police have left a suspect dead.

It happened late Tuesday night. According to Panama City Beach Police, authorities received a call about a suspicious person at 79 West Apartments on Highway 79 about 11 p.m.

When police arrived, they say the suspect "got hostile." Shots were exchanged between the suspect and two Panama City Beach Police officers.

Police followed the suspect to a nearby Winn Dixie parking lot where more shots were fired.

According to witnesses the man took off and kicked over the fence of a family member before trying to break-in to their house via the back door. An officer shot the suspect, which stopped the break-in.

The suspect died at the scene. No officers were harmed. The suspect's name hasn't been released. Police are only saying at this point it's a man from out of town. Investigators say he was the only person involved in this.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is doing an investigation which is protocol with any officer-involved shooting. The Bay County Sheriff's Office is also providing assistance with the investigation.

The officers involved have both been put on administrative leave until after the conclusion of the investigation, which is also protocol with any officer-involved shooting.

"Once they're cleared of it, we'll bring them back to work when they're ready to come back to work," said Panama City Beach Police Chief Drew Whitman, "This is a very hard time for the officers. We'll work with them and make sure they're taken care of. The main thing is they're fine and they're going home tonight."
