ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida have two suspects in custody and are searching for two more after a gunman opened fire on a sheriff's deputy who was following him in an unmarked vehicle.

The shooting happened early Monday as the Orange County Sheriff's deputy was following a suspicious car near Orlando. Sheriff's spokesman Jeff Williamson said in a news release someone in the Honda Accord rolled down the window and fired "multiple" rounds at the deputy, who didn't return fire.

The deputy wasn't injured.

Williamson says the vehicle sped away with marked sheriff's vehicles in pursuit. Four male suspects bailed out of the car near an elementary school.

News outlets report a juvenile tripped and was captured. A second man was arrested a short time later.

The suspects' identities haven't been released.
