Orange County Sergeant Shot

Orlando, FL – An Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy was shot during a gunfight on Tuesday.  The incident happened around Americana Boulevard and Texas Avenue in Holden Heights.

It is unclear what led up to the shooting of the sergeant by a convicted felon on Tuesday.  Multiple reports of an officer in need of assistance went out just before noon in Holden Heights.

The Orlando Police Department and Florida Highway Patrol officers all responded to the shooting, as well as emergency personnel.  At least one ambulance went to the Orlando Regional Medical Center by police escort.  A large blue tarp went up immediately to shield those coming and going from the public.

The suspect lost the gunfight and is justifiably dead. The unidentified sergeant is reportedly awake, but his condition has not been released.

John Young Parkway has been shut down according to the Orlando Sentinel, just north of Americana Boulevard and Grand Central Parkway.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office at this time.

    “It is unclear what led up to the shooting of the sergeant”
    Probably harassment, cops are no longer here to protect and serve, there goal is to ticket as many law abiding citizens as possible, I lost all respect for the Police years ago I no longer care if a well paid hard ass cop meets his maker.

      Rot in hell you piece of shit. Felony squad tracked down a shitbag who was let out of jail, when a judge ordered him to be held without bond. Shitbag was wanted for attacking not one, but three different elderly woman in mall parking lots for their purses. Not only did he rob them, he seriously injured two of them. Also, shitbag had been incarcerated for attempted murder, prior to this. So know the facts before you run that Gator you could never back up. Enjoy being a coward who could never hunt the evil you want to pretend doesn’t exist….

        He is probably a felon himself…just like the founder of “CopBlock” who was raping little girls and trafficking dope.

          You my friend have serious issues with children, seek help now.

    • m.bluth

      Gee Gobby, what happened years ago that you lost respect? Bet we can all guess.

      • Moss500

        Dope or kiddy porn, I would bet.

        • m.bluth

          Ha, I was just thinking about DUI or dope I think you might be onto something with the kiddie pics.

          • Gobby

            You were correct in your first assumption, but it takes real weirdo to suspect someone of child pornography from what I posted.

          • m.bluth

            Sooo, its the cops fault you got drunk and decided to drive. Maybe you should be a grown up and take responsibility for your actions and quit blaming the po po. Nobody to blame but Gobby, not the cops…wait a minute was it the cops fault? Did the cop make you drive drunk then arrest you? If that is the case then you are right. It was the cops fault.

          • Gobby

            Nope DUI & resiting charges were tossed.

          • m.bluth

            So you took a plea deal on the dope charge in exchange for a dismissal on the DUI and resisting charge. So you made multiple bad choices one night and you are the one that lost respect. Typical snowflake.

          • Gobby

            You are a clueless idiot,and to really piss you off let me add that I am $57,000 tax payer funded $ better off then before my run in with the Police.

          • m.bluth

            Hahaha, I’m taking that as you settled a lawsuit for 57,000. What a loser, you go out, get drunk, possess dope, fight police and are unable to do anything except blame the cops and then sue. Should have sued your bag of shit parents for raising such a piece of shit. Hahaha loser.

        • Gobby

          $57,000

        • Gobby

          kiddy porn? you are one depraved individual.

    smh. so sorry this nation has no clue how important you are to us. i know that a lot of people run when theres an emergency.. fleeing cars on fire, fleeing shootings in their own homes, out windows.. anything they can do to save their own life.. all the while, dialing 911 and who shows up.. the men and ladies in blue that dive into burning cars, run into burning homes, stand near windows and run into homes with children being shot at by shooters. i am so sorry so many in this spoiled nation have no concept as to what our service workers do. I really am, it breaks my heart to pieces.. their wives at home.. suffering daily.. or husbands.. wounded in spirit not knowing what the end of the day holds. our nation is being ravaged by evil. you have those who are praying for you.. know that.
