Winter Haven Police Is on the scene of an officer-involved shooting Of Stabbing Suspect

Winter Haven Police are on the scene of an officer-involved shooting that occurred earlier today. No officers are injured and the suspect has non-life-threatening injuries and has been taken to the hospital for treatment.

The incident location is 2316 Isle Royal Court SE in Winter Haven. Near Holiday Inn and Boston Market.

The events unfolded during a domestic disturbance call at the residence. Officers responded to the resident after a witness called stating 35 year-old Nathan Armstrong (DOB 3-15-87) was stabbing a female in the residence.

When officers arrived, they immediately entered the residence finding Armstrong in the residence continuing to stab the victim. The officer commanded Armstrong to drop the knife, however he continued to stab the victim. In order to stop Armstrong, the officer fired his service weapon striking Armstrong in the leg. Once Armstrong was secured, officers immediately started rendering aid to Armstrong and the victim.
Both were taken to the hospital where they remain with non-life-threatening injuries.

“Our officer saved this victim’s life,” said Winter Haven Police Chief David Brannan. “Had our officer not taken the immediate action to stop Armstrong, the outcome for the victim could have been much worse.”

This is very early in the investigation with limited information available.
The Tenth Judicial Circuit Task Force, overseen by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, is handling the investigation.
