JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A police officer is recovering after being hit by a car other officers were trying to apprehend in a narcotics case. Officer "Nick" Isaraj was injured yesterday in Jacksonville when he stepped out of an unmarked car and was hit by a car traveling in the opposite direction.

MIAMI (AP) — Police say the motive in a shooting that killed two and injured seven others was likely revenge or drug dealers staking out turf. The shooting happened early Tuesday in Miami's Liberty City neighborhood. Authorities say 30-year-old Kevin Richardson and 26-year-old Nakeri Jackson died in the gunfire.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Florida's population continued to get older last year from a combination of natural aging and new residents, and the state had the highest rate of residents older than 65 years old.

New estimates released today by the U.S. Census Bureau shows Florida grew by 1.2 percent from 2012 to 2013, and the state now has about 19.5 million residents.
