Both officers, as well as two other officers, then returned fire, Nas said. It is not known if Parran was hit by the officers' gunfire. A fifth officer was also on scene, but was not involved in the shooting, police said.

Casselberry police said the two injured officers were hit in the face and leg. Both officers were taken to a nearby hospital, where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said. They have since been released and are doing "very well," according to the Casselberry Police Department.
