Authorities originally responded to reports the man was shooting a "high-power rifle" at the Sabal Trail Pipeline and associated equipment along a state highway in Dunnellon, Florida.

Citrus County deputies and a trooper fatally shot an armed man Sunday morning after he shot the Sabal Pipeline in Marion County, led authorities on a pursuit and then shot at them, officials said.

The suspect fled the scene in a 2016 Chevrolet pickup truck, also leading Citrus County deputies and FHP troopers on a chase into Citrus County.

Just last Wednesday, two protesters staged what was described as a "pipe sit in" by crawling inside the pipe and refusing to come out for several hours.

Neither deputies or the trooper, a four-year FHP veteran, were injured.

Troopers and deputies returned fire and killed the suspect. The sheriff's office says he "engaged with law enforcement" before being fatally shot.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which is investigating the shooting, has not released the identity of the victim.

According to investigators, the suspect crashed on US Highway 41 near Floral Park Drive. "He's in full tactical gear, it looks like", Matthews said.

The man fled, driving into neighboring Citrus County.

A man who fired shots at a central Florida construction site died during a shootout with sheriff's deputies following a chase.
