A suspect was wounded in a shootout with police officers in a Davie neighborhood Wednesday night, officials said.

The shooting happened at around 6:22 p.m. in the Park City West neighborhood after officers responded to a domestic disturbance, Davie Police officials said.

Before officers arrived, the suspect had fired shots at an unoccupied vehicle near a residence, officials said.

When the two officers encountered the suspect in the neighborhood, they exchanged gunfire with the suspect, who was eventually struck.

The suspect was taken to the hospital where he was undergoing surgery, but police said he's expected to recover.

Officials on Thursday identified the suspect as 26-year-old Kaazim Daniel Campbell, who they said is facing charges of carrying a concealed firearm, discharging a firearm in public and improper exhibition of a firearm.

No officers were injured. The officers involved have been placed on administrative leave.

Two firearms were recovered at the scene. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the incident.
