I Broke My Neck During An On Duty Shooting - Please Help!
Surgery
Florida
September 4th, 2020

Based on a tip from a confidential informant, myself and other officers were serving a warrant on a violent felon, previously convicted of murder and wanted for the attempted murder of his girlfriend just a few days earlier.

My partners entered the residence and observed the suspect enter a back bedroom down a hallway. They immediately began giving commands for the suspect to show his hands and surrender. The suspect retreated into the bedroom and shut the bedroom door. They kicked the bedroom door open and were immediately greeted by gunfire. one of my partners was struck in the chest, fell backwards and took cover and returned fire. Although shot in the chest, he ensured the female inside the room was able to exit unharmed. Once he ensured the safety of the female, he entered the room to subdue the suspect.  Luckily, he survived and is doing well thanks to his vest.

I was running towards the entry to the residence to provide assistance.  Suddenly, I lost my footing and struck a vehicle with the side of my head and broke my neck.  While in and out of consciousness I was still able to help the female leave the residence, unharmed.

Please help support me due to this tragic event.  Thank you and stay safe.
