BRADENTON, Fla. (WFLA) – A suspect is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Bradenton, authorities said.

The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said the shooting happened in the area of Cape Vista Drive and Cortez Road West a little after 12:30 a.m.

According to deputies, Justin Stackhouse was driving a vehicle that had heavy front end damage and a shredded front tire. Deputies tried to pull him over, but he drove to a Walmart parking lot and the vehicle got stuck on a curb.

Deputies said Stackhouse started driving in reverse toward a deputy, so the deputy fired several rounds at the car.
