“This is a difficult day for all involved. My thoughts are with the family who lost a loved one under tragic circumstances, with the officers who were put into a position that required them to use deadly force, and the innocent store employees who were traumatized by this incident. The officers took actions today to protect our community.  Now, FDLE will conduct an independent investigation as part of a new process that ensures objectivity and transparency.”
