4 deputies shoot armed man after responding to loud music complaint in Apopka

A man was shot and critically injured by four deputies after pointing a gun at them during a confrontation over loud music, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Orange County Sheriff John Mina says deputies were responding to a call about loud music coming from a home on Majestic Oak Drive near the Sweetwater Golf Club in Apopka Wednesday morning.




A 49-year-old man reportedly pointed a gun at the deputies, forcing them to open fire. 

The man was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center in critical condition. None of the deputies were hurt.

Sheriff Mina says they had been called to the same home twice in March because of reports of loud music and that during one of their visits, a man was reportedly drunk and beligerent toward the responding deputies. 




The shooting is under investigation. 

Following standard procedure, the four deputies involved have been placed on administrative leave.
