A suspect has been taken into custody after allegedly fatally shooting a police officer in Tarpon Springs, Florida. The incident comes after a gunman killed two officers in New York City after issuing threats against law enforcement.

Veteran officer Charles Kondek was shot early Sunday morning near the coastal town’s Sponge Docks. The 45-year-old father of five had been on the force for 18 years.

After the shooting the officer, the suspect fled the crime scene in a white Hyundai sedan, before crashing into a pole, where he was arrested, police spokesperson Cecilia Barreda told Bay News 9.

Several city blocks around the crime scene were cordoned off Sunday morning as investigators collected evidence.

A police news conference is planned for Sunday.

The killing comes on the heels of Saturday’s double police murder in New York. A 28-year-old African-American man shot and killed two police officers in Brooklyn before turning the gun on himself. The man had posted assassination threats, including pictures of the pistol he would use to kill the officers, on Instagram earlier that day.
