According to the Orlando Sentinel, citing police sources, the SWAT team hit an apartment on Orange Blossom Trail about 8:00am. At least two members of the SWAT team opened fire on the man as he pointed his weapon at them, according to Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings.
"In these situations, they have to make a split-second decision to protect themselves," Demings said.
While police have not released the man's name, they described him as having "a violent past" and said he was a convicted felon.
Demings said the man did not fire his weapon, but did point it at officers.
