Parran had called police to the home saying that he had beaten his wife. When officers arrived, he met them at the door with a shotgun. Four officers fired their weapons and retreated from the home.
The two officers had minor injuries. Both were treated at a hospital and released.
At a morning news conference, Casselberry Police Chief Larry Krantz said that his “officers acted admirably when faced with this situation.”
Witnesses claimed to have heard 50 or 60 gunshots during the ordeal.
Parran had no history of violence and was a military veteran.
His wife was not present in the home when the shooting occurred.
