Florida trooper dies in shooting at highway rest stop

PALM CITY, Fla. (AP) — A Florida Highway Patrol trooper died in a shooting at an Interstate 95 rest stop Wednesday, the agency said.

Trooper Joseph Bullock, a 19-year veteran, died in a shooting before noon at a rest stop near Palm City, about a 45-minute drive north of West Palm Beach, the highway patrol said in a statement.

No further details were released, including whether a suspect had been arrested. The agency did not immediately respond to phone calls, emails and texts.

The shooting closed Interstate 95 in both directions in the area. It was expected to remain closed until at least late Wednesday afternoon, officials said.
