Florida Deputies Fatally Shoot Man After Knocking on Wrong Door (VIDEO)

This past weekend, police in Florida shot and killed a man they mistook for an attempted murder suspect.

The fatal shooting occurred around 1:30 AM on Sunday morning, when Lake County sheriff’s deputies pounded on the Leesburg apartment door of 26-year-old Andrew Lee Scott.

Scott answered the door holding a firearm.

“When we knocked on the door, the door opened and the occupant of that apartment was pointing a gun at deputies, and that’s when we opened fire and killed him,” Lt. John Herrell told local reporters.

    “It’s unclear why the man answered the door with a gun in his hands.”

    Uhhhh, because he did not have a gun in his hands when he answered the door!  Duh!

    When there is no penalty for not verifying your facts before undertaking an action this will happen more and more.
    The cop should be up on 1st Degree Aggravated Murder Charges! Period!
    They could have watched the house and arrested him away from his weapon, fully awake, fully visible.
    But, nio evil acts in darkness!
