Lauderhill - A Florida police officer who allegedly shot at a fellow cop before driving off and ordering pizza on Saturday night has been identified.

Officer Kristopher John Bieger, 30, is charged with attempted first degree murder and discharging a firearm from a vehicle, according to Lauderhill Police Department.

The bullet missed the intended victim - a female colleague whose name is not being released.

According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the shooting took place by Inverry Boulevard and NW 56 Ave. in Lauderhill at about 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.

A report in the Miami Herald said Bieger then drove to a Publix shopping center near the corner of Griffin and Volunteer roads, where he entered Donato's Ristorante and ordered two slices of pizza.

Donato DeLio, 60, owner of the restaurant, told the newspaper: "He was just a regular customer...The guy was not threatening nobody."

The report said Bieger walked outside to the parking lot, appearing agitated, while waiting for his order.

At that point, DeLio said, police telephoned the restaurant and told him to lock the front door, stay away from the front windows, and move all his customers and employees to the rear of the premises.

"We were in the back for two hours," DeLio told the newspaper. "Then the SWAT team came in through our back door."

Police said in an email that Bieger was arrested and booked in the Broward County Main Jail around 11 a.m. Sunday.

Bieger has been with the City of Lauderhill since 2006. He has been suspended without pay.

Lauderhill police wouldn't comment on the nature of the incident, or why it happened, or the nature of the relationship between Bieger and his intended victim.
