TAMPA, Fla. — A Florida police officer has been shot and wounded while serving an arrest warrant at the home of a man facing charges for making violent threats to his family.

Tampa police announced on social media that Officer Richard Lehr was released from a hospital Monday afternoon.

Police say Lehr and Officer Leigh Smith were serving the warrant at an apartment complex early Monday morning when 35-year-old Walter Richard Jeziorski opened fire.

Tampa police Chief Brian Dugan pointed to “mental health issues,” adding that the shooting is an example of what “officers deal with every day.”

Jeziorski surrendered to police shortly after the shooting. He had several previous arrests on charges that include battery and domestic violence. It’s not clear whether Jeziorski has a lawyer.
