A police officer in northeastern Florida has been shot at least twice outside of a Waffle House.

The Jacksonville Beach Police Department tells WTLV-TV that one of their officers was shot Wednesday night. The officer was taken to a hospital.

Authorities haven’t released the officer’s name, but Jacksonville Beach Mayor Charlie Latham says the officer is in good condition and is expected to make a full recovery.

Latham visited the officer and his family in the hospital.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry tweeted late Wednesday that they were praying for the wounded officer.

It was not immediately known what led to the shooting.
