Colt Model 1908 Hammerless

Jacksonville police officer wounded, man killed in a shooting during burglary investigation

Teresa Stepzinski, Florida Times-Union
A Jacksonville police officer was wounded, and a man was shot and killed by other officers when a burglary investigation evolved into a shooting early Friday evening outside a home in a Northwest neighborhood.

Sheriff T.K. Waters said the officer is lucky to be alive.

He was struck by a bullet that grazed the left side of his face in the shooting about 6:30 p.m. in the 1800 block of Hardee Street. The officer was expected to be released from the hospital later Friday evening, Waters said.

“We are fortunate that we didn’t lose an officer tonight. I’m grateful for that and I’m grateful that they [Sheriff’s Office police officers] are here to continue to work and serve this community,” Waters said.

Waters said the man who wounded the officer died when police returned fire striking him several times. The Sheriff’s Office didn’t release the man’s name Friday night but Waters said “he’s had several dealings with local law enforcement.”


The Friday night shooting was the second in as many days when Jacksonville police shot and killed a suspect.

Jax- come for the gridlock, stay for the nightly shootings.

As the officers approached the home, they encountered two armed suspects.

After failing to comply with the officers’ commands, police fired their weapons striking one of the suspects.

That suspect was taken to the hospital and is listed in stable condition. The other was taken into custody.

The other suspect heeded the warning shots. Thank again for the links, Gun Bunny.

Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.

Now the Jacksonville officer will have a scar and a story to tell his children and grandchildren.

How many rounds did the Wilmington po-po fire vs how many bullets hit the perp vs how many bullets hit innocent people?


One good way to NOT become DRT or WRT, is to listen to the requests of Officer(s) Friendly.

Too bad we can’t as easily dispose of politicians as we do dirty diapers.

So good to see that the Tributes to HMS JMB (HBHN) are continuing The dinning from the Dining In on evening past was glorious. I, too, have a watch fob, albeit, unfortunately, it is an Eyetalian copy of His work.
