Fla. deputy accidentally shoots suspect in face


The Orlando Sentinel

ORLANDO, FL — Two suspects seen taking six pairs of Nikes from a Colonial Drive shoe store Sunday afternoon fled in a vehicle but were arrested shortly thereafter, thanks to a cell-phone call from a citizen who followed them in her car.

During the subsequent arrest, in which the suspects were ordered to the ground at gunpoint, a sheriff deputy’s shotgun accidentally discharged, with one of the suspects slightly wounded from a pellet or pellets hitting him in the cheek, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office report.
