SEBRING, FLORIDA (WESH) – A man who was barricaded inside of a Sebring bank after a reported shooting has surrendered to a SWAT team.
The Sebring Police Department posted on Facebook that officers responded to a SunTrust Bank branch Wednesday afternoon. Officials didn’t immediately say if anyone was injured or killed, but live video from the scene showed medical gurneys outside the bank.
Officials with the Highland County Sheriff’s Office said authorities were called to the bank on US-27 after a man called 911 and told dispatchers that he had fired shots inside the bank.
Deputies said the man barricaded himself inside the bank. Initial negotiations to get the barricaded man to leave the bank were unsuccessful, but he eventually surrendered to a SWAT team.
