A Pinellas Deputy Opens Fire

Largo, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Pinellas Sheriff's Office Investigators are following up on a deputy involved shooting at a Circle K store on Belcher Road, South, at 142nd Avenue in Largo. 

It all started when Deputy Ethan Taylor spotted a stolen car and followed it to the Circle K.  Another deputy, Lori Fagen, pulled her unmarked cruiser into the parking lot.

When the deputies tried to approach the stolen vehicle, the driver slammed the car into reverse into the unmarked patrol car.  Deputy Taylor then opened fire and caused the stolen vehicle to accelerate into a nearby retention pond.

Nobody hit by the gunfire, but a man named Bryant Collins is under arrest.
