Construction Theft in Progress

Shortly after midnight today, deputies responded to the area of 191st Street and State Line Road to the report of a construction theft in progress. Upon arrival the deputy encountered a suspect. That suspect fired multiple shots at the deputy. The deputy was not injured during the incident nor did he return fire.

A perimeter was established and a search for that suspect continued through the night and day. At noon we were able to identify a person of interest from surveillance cameras at the scene.  Shortly after 1:00 PM this afternoon, the person of interest was apprehended without incident.

The investigation of the incident is still underway and the identification of the person in custody will be released upon formal charging.
