ORLANDO, Fla. -

Orange County Sheriff's Office and Orlando Police Department are investigating an officer-involved shooting in Orange County on Wednesday night.

Sgt. Jim Young says the officers were investigating a drug complaint at a home on Arlington Street off of West Colonial Drive and when the culprit opened the door, one of the people inside pulled a gun on the officer, prompting the officers to draw their guns and fire.

Witnesses said they heard at least four gunshots and saw several people being pulled out by police from what appears to be a recording studio.

No other details were immediately available.

This is the second officer-involved shooting in Orange County in less than 24 hours.

On Tuesday police shot one man in the Rosemont area and later arrested a second man in the incident after a standoff that lasted several hours.
