Video supplied to a local news outlet (above) shows deputies responding and fatally shooting the suspect after first deploying a taser.

As a busy stretch of the I-95 highway through south Florida began clearing this morning from earlier fatal shooting, another incident occurred that took more lives and involved a Palm Beach County Deputy opening fire on a suspect.
From the information available it appears as though a driver was heading south on the northbound lanes which led to multiple accidents involving approximately 8 vehicles. Immediately following this incident a PBSO deputy shot a driver, likely the suspect who was driving the wrong way.
In all, there are 2 fatalities and multiple people have been rushed to nearby hospitals. It is not yet known if the suspect is deceased.
The major thoroughfare, which is typically congested during rush hour traffic, will be closed in the northbound direction for the rest of the day.
There is also a heavy police presence at a nearby strip mall.
I-95 Northbound from Lantana Rd. To 6th Ave will be closed for the rest of the day due to an officer-involved shooting. More information to follow.
