MOUNT DORA, Fla. — Sgt. Jim Jicha narrowly missed a gunshot to the head.

Jicha was patrolling the area of Jackson Avenue and Orange Street on Tuesday morning when a bullet shattered his police car's rear window and lodged in his headrest. The impact threw him forward in his seat. He reached back and felt wetness on the back of his head. It was only sweat, but the moment terrified him, he said.
