WALTON COUNTY, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – An active-shooter situation in Florida that unfolded in real time on the air Tuesday came to an end after officials announced that the suspect, 49-year-old Kevin Robert Holroyd, was dead.
Walton County Sheriff Michael Adkinson confirmed the suspect’s death at a press conference later that day, adding that the shooter was in “an elevated position firing hundreds of rounds threatening the public and their fellow law enforcement.”
“We are very grateful that multi-agency cooperation was able to quickly resolve this issue without any further loss of life,” he said.
Multiple law enforcement agencies surrounded an apartment building in Panama City, Fla., where Holroyd, also wanted in connection with a homicide in a nearby county, was said to have barricaded himself inside.
A WMBB local reporter was interviewing a witness on the scene who reportedly heard gunshots earlier. In the middle of detailing what was heard, both the man and the reporter quickly ran for cover after a number of gunshots rang out in the background.
