Florida sniper shoots, kills bank robber holding hostages through computer monitor: Video
Florida sniper’s shot through computer monitor at alleged bank robber ‘planned and deliberate,’ LCSO says

Video released by a Florida sheriff’s office shows the moment a sniper shot through a computer monitor and killed a suspected armed bank robber who was holding hostages.

It all unfolded Feb. 6 at a Fort Myers Bank of America, said Sheriff Carmine Marceno of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO). Responding deputies discovered the suspect had a knife and claimed he had a bomb while detaining a man and a woman.

“We tried to negotiate with him continuously,” Marceno said in a previous press conference, adding that at one point, the suspect held a knife to the female hostage’s throat.

It was after the suspect “presented deadly force” that an LCSO Special Operations Unit sniper fired a “planned and deliberate shot through a computer monitor,” striking the suspect in the center of the forehead and killing him instantly.

The Po-Po sniper got to shoot a computer monitor and a bad guy. Lucky bastard. Thanks to some Usual Suspects for sending this one in.

Sheriff: Off-duty deputy shoots 26-year-old burglar who broke into his home

By: Michael Coker , Molly Schramm
READING, Ohio — A Hamilton County deputy returning home from work shot a burglar who broke into his home early Sunday morning, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office said.

At approximately 5:30 a.m., Hamilton County deputies and Reading police officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 1700 block of Keith Road in Reading.

Investigators said there was a confrontation, and the deputy fired his personally owned weapon.

In a recording of a 911 call we obtained, the off-duty deputy tells dispatch “I’m in my personal residence, somebody broke into my house when I got off duty and tried to attack my family. Shots fired.”

In court Monday, officials said 26-year-old Darryl Williams entered the house through a closed kitchen window and went to the bedroom. A woman was in the room at the time.

Before the deputy fired shots, he physically fought with the suspect, officials said in court.

An office manager for a nearby apartment complex told our crew on the scene that they heard one shot around 5 a.m. They also said they saw search dogs and drones in the neighborhood. She walked the apartment grounds around 7 a.m. and was instructed by investigators to go back inside, she said.

“This sort of thing never happens in the area,” she said. “It’s a shock when it does.

She is 4 years younger than he is, I guess he is happy to be robbing the cradle.

At that age and stage in life, who’s going to begrudge the groom a little cradle robbing? Not me.

Exactly!

Both perps had (HAD) poor victim selection skills.

Who HASN’T wanted to shoot a computer? Making a bad guy DRT is just an added bonus. “White Feather”…grins.

“Release the Roomba!” Modern problems call for modern solutions.

Magua speak the fire water very well, too.

A lot of great tactical coordination to get the shot off. BZ

I wonder what the expression was on the face of the two hostages as the perp’s head exploded.

The Sniper has got some uber-serious gun skilz. Through the monitor into the forehead for a “never knew what hit him until he realized he was in Hell” moment.

Good on the Deputy for protecting his own family – and showing more restraint than I would have. He tried to physically restrain the perp, then shot him. I’da just shot him.

Nice little ceremonial hawk there. I spent several years, off and on, shaping a handle out of bois d’arc for my hawk. The likelihood of it breaking at an inopportune time is much less now.

Do you think the bank is going to make a claim against the Sheriff for the monitor? Personally I think they ought to hang it on the wall as a warning to future bank robbers.

With a name like “Sterling Avalanche”, the bank perp had to eventually meet his downfall (rimshot)
