Award-Winning Florida Cop Indicted for Shooting into Occupied Home
An award-winning Florida cop who fired into an occupied home after responding to a wrong address, forcing an innocent family out at gunpoint in the middle of the night and ordering them to sit handcuffed on the curb for ten hours, was indicted by a grand jury.
There is still no word on whether the other officer who fired into the Central Florida home, Stephanie Roberts, will also be indicted. Both were already under investigation by internal affairs prior to the shooting.
The actual address was a home on Bent Grass Avenue, but the dispatcher typed in “Bend Grass Avenue,” which did not come up in the system.
The officers pulled up to the home and began banging on the front door, rousing a husband, wife and 12-year-old son from their sleep.
When the husband demanded to know who was at the door, he received no answer, so he assumed they were burglars trying to break into his home.
The man then retrieved a gun as the cops began shining lights into his home, which made them fear for their lives.
“Gun!” one of the cops yelled before both cops opened fire.
The family then hit the ground as bullets tore into their home.
It does not appear as if the cops ever made it to the correct address where the domestic violence was taking place because they spent the next ten hours further harassing the family by keeping them handcuffed on the curb.
Roberts has since been fired, but Anglero was kept on paid administrative leave.
