  • Police Officer accidentally shoots child???

    While listening to the am radio during my shift last night, I half heard something about a small boy shot by a Police Officer. From what I heard, a Police Officer responded to a call reference a nuissance snake in a tree. According to the report, the police officer pulled his firearm to shoot the snake out of the tree. Apparently, a small boy was fishing with his Uncle or Grandfather nearby when he was hit and killed by the bullet. It wasn't a local incident. Anyone hear anything about it?

    Be safe,

    Hank

    I heard a little about it. He fired two shots, the second one traveled approx. 400 ft through the woods and struck the boy in the head killing him. The family says they have forgiven the officer but wants criminal charges filed.

        How big was the snake that they thought they would shoot it and hit it.

          Man, there wasn't a whole lot to that story to really get a grasp of what actually happened, tho...

                      Man a total tragedy for all involved. If I got nothing from the NRA test the one thing I remember is never fire until you know what is behind your target unless circumstances don't allow it. Not verbatim but close.
                      THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A 911 CALL IS FOUR MINUTES
                      THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A .357 MAGNUM ROUND IS 1400 FEET PER SECOND?

                        We were always taught when a snake was reported to notify animal control 24/7. Nobody in their right mind tries to kill a snake with solid shot that is why they issue number eight gage .38, .45 and 9 mm snake shot. That is only to be used with a supervisor's specific issued communications.
                        Some few folks in the law enforcement community fail to use common sense. For some, that term represents an oxymoron.
                        Enjoy the day,
                        Bill

                          If this is anything like Pinellas County, animal control won't come out unless you are a law enforcement officer who has a rabid dog who has bit contained or shot till dead.

                            Hillsborough County's animal control is worse than Pinellas County. Trying to get them to respond is like pullling teeth!
