BRADENTON- Tulani Cooper lay on a bedroom floor as heavily armored sheriff's deputies barged through the front door.

He said he saw officers rushing in with "big, long guns" in the late July raid, and, according to reports, he fired a shot, striking a sheriff's lieutenant in his hand.

Suddenly two deputy sheriffs unloaded 10 rounds, and an unarmed man in the bedroom took a bullet to his leg.
