ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Florida deputies have fatally shot a man suspected of killing an 82-year-old woman.

Orange County Sheriff’s officials say James Bauduy fatally shot Elfriede Asendorf in her home Thursday and then stole her daughter’s car. Authorities believe the daughter is Bauday’s ex-girlfriend.

Two deputies say they approached 48-year-old Bauduy on Friday but he refused comply with commands so the deputies fired their weapons. Sheriff Jerry Demings said the deputies believed the man was armed. The sheriff did not say whether they recovered a weapon.

Sergeant Bruce Vail and Corporal Randolph Hovland have been reassigned to administrative duties pending an investigation which is standard protocol.
