Suspect fatally shot by Daytona Beach police during foot chase

A Daytona Beach shooting suspect was fatally shot by officers Monday morning during a pursuit after police say he shot a man multiple times and opened fire on officers. Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri said the incident started when police received a call about a person shot inside a Hollywood Street home. Capri said the victim, Jamauri Burks, 21, was found in his home and had been shot in the neck and other parts of his body. Burks was taken to Halifax Health Medical Center in stable condition. While investigating the shooting, a witness told officers the shooting suspect walked outside a home and officers began chasing the suspect on foot behind neighboring houses. Police later identified the suspect as 21-year-old Jerric Harris. During the chase, Harris pulled out a gun and fired several shots at police. Two officers returned fire, striking Harris multiple times, the chief said. A gun was recovered from the scene, police said. Harris was taken to Halifax Health Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. The officers were not hit by the suspect’s gunfire.
