An Orlando police officer was shot late Sunday after responding to a domestic violence call at an apartment complex, officials said.

Orlando police swarmed the Westbrook Apartments, near Universal Orlando, where a standoff is underway with a barricaded person. The police chief says Valencia is expected to survive but he has "very significant injuries". The four children with him are reportedly ages 1,7, 10, and 12. Gunfire was exchanged. Mina said they don't know if the man was shot.

Residents in the apartment described the late-night incident.

Orlando's Mayor Buddy Dyer responded to the shooting, tweeting Monday morning: "Sending our community's support and prayers to the @OrlandoPolice officer shot late last night".

"The suspect is barricaded in his apartment". The suspect's relationship to the children was not stated yet either. She looked out her window and saw an officer down. He then sped down Princeton, lost control and crashed into a utility pole less than a mile away. The police officer's shooting comes about 17 months after Sgt. Debra Clayton, a 17-year veteran of the Orlando Police Department, was gunned down allegedly by a man suspected of killing his pregnant former girlfriend. Officers appeared to be putting bandages around his neck.

The Westbrook Apartments are located at 4932 Eaglesmere Dr., off Kirkman Road.

It's not clear whether the gunman or children have been injured in the standoff.

"Hell, yes, I was absolutely terrified, '" Pepper reportedly told the paper. They were later taken to a nearby hotel.

"We've been through this before", Mina said. The mother met with police outside the complex, authorities said. Residents of the neighboring apartment complexes had to show identification and be escorted by the police.
