Police fatally shot a suspected carjacker in Orlando after being flagged down by the victim.

The shooting happened early Wednesday on Orlando's west side shortly after three men stole a vehicle from a man making food deliveries.

Police say the carjackers rammed the vehicle into patrol cars and threatened officers. As the suspects got out of the vehicle two officers discharged their weapons.

One of the men died at the scene. The other two fled and are being sought by authorities.

No further details were immediately available.
