Two cops were shot in the Florida community of Kissimmee Friday night — one was fatally injured and the other is in very grave condition according the Kissimmee Police.

Officer Matthew Baxter and Sgt. Sam Howard were responding to a call when it appears they were ambushed, authorities said.

Baxter was killed and Sgt. Sam Howard was clinging to life. Three suspects are in custody and a fourth is being sought.
