The Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office originally posted to Facebook around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday that, “The members of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend our condolences to our sister agency, the Florida Highway Patrol.
“Sadly they lost a trooper earlier today in Martin County due to a felonious act.”
That social media post has since been removed.
Authorities have not revealed what might have led to the shooting, WPEC reported.
All lanes of I-95 were shut down in both directions in Martin County, WPTV reported. The highway is expected to be closed for several hours, according to the Martin County Sheriff's Office.
