ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Two Florida police officers were shot and critically injured during a traffic stop, and the suspect was fatally shot by SWAT team members several hours later. The suspect was killed early Saturday after he barricaded himself in a hotel in Orlando’s tourist district in the culmination of a manhunt involving dozens of law enforcement officers. The Orlando Police Department officers stopped a vehicle around 11 p.m. Friday as part of an investigation of a Miami homicide and were shot by the suspect in the car. The officers were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center. Hospital officials say they are expected to fully recover.
