ORLANDO, Florida — Police say one person died and another was injured during a shooting that involved two officers at an Orlando apartment complex.

Sgt. Wanda Ford told the Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1udzzcq ) the officers were part of an undercover drug unit doing a follow up investigation on Wednesday night.

Ford says the officers saw two men firing weapons in the complex and confronted them. Shots were fired and one of the men died. The other was taken into custody. It was not clear whether the officers' gunfire killed the suspect.

Both officers will be placed on standard administrative leave while the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigates.

A security guard at a neighboring complex said he heard nine shots.

The names of the suspects or the officers were not released.
