CAPE CORAL, Fla. (AP) - Police officers in southwest Florida fatally shot a man suspected in the fatal shootings of a person in a nearby convenience store and a man on a motorcycle moments earlier.

Cape Coral police said in a news release that officers responding to a shooting call Sunday evening found the motorcyclist dead along a roadway. While working that scene, a second call came in about a shooting at a nearby convenience store. There, officers found one person dead. Another person there had injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Authorities say officers stopped the suspect’s vehicle about four minutes later and he “violently” resisted arrest. The news release says multiple officers fired at him. Two passengers were wounded and taken to a hospital.

The names and race of those involved weren’t released.
