LAKELAND — An early morning shooting Wednesday involving Lakeland Police Department officers has left a Winter Haven teenager dead.

The incident took place about 2 a.m. during a gathering of about 200 people in the parking lot of Salem’s Fresh Eats restaurant. Police spokesman Gary Gross said the agency received a call from an employee at Salem’s requesting officers to clear the parking lot at 101 E. Memorial Blvd. at North Florida Avenue.

Responding to the gathering, officers spotted a stolen Camaro out of Winter Haven in the parking lot. Lakeland Police Chief Larry Giddens said as multiple officers approached the vehicle issuing verbal commands, the driver accelerated from a parked position, “aggressively” speeding through the parking lot toward an officer and a group of patrons who were scattering from the approaching Camaro.

Giddens called the scene “chaotic” and said the officer feared for his life as well as the safety of a large group of scattering patrons.

Officers opened fire on the vehicle, which struck multiple vehicles and a utility pole, Giddens said. The Camaro eventually rammed into a parked car, launching it into the neighboring Bike Barn business, causing a hole in the exterior block wall.

Prior to those multiple collisions, a female passenger was able to roll out of the vehicle, Giddens said. The woman told officers that a firearm may have been in the Camaro, and the weapon was later found on the driver’s side floorboard, Giddens said.

Following the collision with the Bike Barn business, officers got Michael Jerome Taylor, 17, of Winter Haven out of the Camaro and began to perform first aid. He was pronounced dead at Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center.

Taylor had four previous felony arrests, ranging from burglary to grand theft auto, police said.

The officers involved in the incident are Markais Neal, 28; Joseph Novis, 25; and Raj Patel, 23. Neal has one year of service, while Novis and Patel each have been with the department for 18 months.

Police had not yet determined how many times the suspect was shot or how many rounds the officers fired.

Salem’s was the site of an incident early Thanksgiving morning in which a melee broke out and several people were arrested. The eatery is a regular gathering spot for people who congregate after nightclubs close at 2 a.m., Gross said following that incident.

More details emerge on Lakeland police fatal shooting of man at I-4 construction site

LAKELAND — In the weeks since a man was shot and killed by Lakeland Police officers after reportedly firing at them from a vehicle parked along I-4, new information has emerged on the officers involved as well as who the man was.

According to officials with the South Florida transportation design and construction company Condotte America Inc., Raul Marrero was monitoring a pump on a work site along the highway near Kathleen Road in Lakeland.

Marrero, 61, had been an employee with the company for more than 20 years.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd:'Attacking a deputy with a deadly weapon is not acceptable ever'

Florida Highway Patrol's Traffic Management Center saw the seemingly displaced vehicle from a camera monitoring the area and reached out to the Lakeland Police Department and the Polk County Sheriff's Office to ask if it was one of their patrol vehicles.

FHP Public Affairs Officer Steve Gaskins said the agency sent a trooper to investigate the vehicle, but LPD officers were already in the area and arrived first.

Officers Tammy Hathcock and Garrett Zeigler approached the vehicle and tapped on the window to speak to Marrero, LPD officials said in release.

“As they approached the vehicle, the officers noticed the suspect arm himself – there was a series of shots,” Lakeland Police Chief Ruben Garcia said at a press conference that followed the shooting. “Preliminarily at this point, we believe the subject did fire. Our officers returned fire, neutralized the suspect.”

Hathcock and Zeigler have since been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

"Our hearts go out to the family of our long-time employee who was on the job monitoring a de-watering pump at our construction site as he has done through the night for the past several months," officials with Condotte America said through a statement from company's media contact, Audrey Young. "We are cooperating fully with the authorities who are investigating this most unfortunate incident."

Condotte officials said the company has since conducted a "safety stand down" in light of Marrero's death during which the employer reviewed safety standards with its construction employees and Employee Assistance Program representatives were brought on-site to counsel the employees as well.

Hathcock has been with the department for more than 20 years, 15 of which as a police officer with the LPD. Zeigler is a nine-year law enforcement veteran who has served with LPD for the past five months.

A review of their personnel files revealed both have passed the Florida Department of Law Enforcement firearms qualification assessments.

Records also show Hathcock has three closed incidents listed in her LPD discipline history – the oldest dating to 2001. Two of the three incidents were found to be lawful and proper. But action related to competency and performance in 2012 resulted in formal counseling for Hathcock.

In her time at LPD, however, Hathcock has received four commendations, two employee recognition awards and four distinguished performance awards.

This year, she received two of her three meritorious service awards and was recognized as detective of the year.

Standard protocol for Lakeland Police Officers involved in shootings include four independent investigations: The LPD Violent Crimes unit is conducting the death investigation, the LPD’s Office of Professional Standards is conducting an administrative review, the State Attorney’s Office is also conducting an investigation, as well as the 10th District Medical Examiner’s Office.

Shooter in Lakeland, Florida kills 4, including infant, shoots 11-year-old girl multiple times, sheriff says

LAKELAND, Fla. — Four people were killed, an 11-year-old girl was shot and deputies came under fire early Sunday in a neighborhood in North Lakeland, Florida.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said the shootings took place at 4:30 a.m. in two separate houses on the same property.

Judd said two separate shootouts occurred "in short order" between law enforcement and the suspect, Bryan Riley, 33, of Brandon, Florida. Riley was shot once and surrendered shortly after, he said. Lakeland police and troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol were also involved. No law officers were injured in the shootout.

After Riley was in custody, police discovered an 11-year-old girl who had been shot "multiple times," as well as a man, two women and an infant dead.

Judd said Riley was a Marine Corps veteran and served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He spent four years in the Corps before being honorably discharged. He then spent another three years in the reserves.

He worked at ESS Global Corp., providing executive protection and security. According to his girlfriend of four years, whom he lived with in Brandon, Riley had PTSD and was occasionally depressed but never violent.

She said he worked security at a church in Orlando a week ago and came home saying he could speak directly to God.

Judd said that Saturday evening, Riley was in North Lakeland and saw a man mowing a lawn. Judd said Riley stopped and told the man that he needed to speak to the man's daughter, Amber, because God warned him she was going to commit suicide. But the man and a woman at the residence told Riley there was no one there by that name.

Polk County shooting:What we know about the gunfire in Lakeland, Florida that killed four people

Images of bullet holes in a residence where Polk sheriff's deputies and other police units exchanged fire with a shooting suspect in a neighborhood off North Socrum Loop Road in Lakeland early Sunday.

The incident was reported to the Sheriff's Office, and a deputy went to the neighborhood at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. But Riley couldn't be found. Riley's girlfriend later told detectives that Riley returned home that evening and told her God gave him a vision that the man's daughter was going to kill herself.

Nine hours later, Judd said, a lieutenant about two miles away heard two volleys of gunfire from the area of the original call. At the same time, 911 calls began coming in reporting an active shooting.

When deputies and other law enforcement arrived, they saw a truck on fire and a popping noise coming from the front yard. As they approached, they found an individual who was "totally outfitted in body armor and looked as though he was ready to engage us in an active shooter situation." Judd said.

"But we didn't see a firearm."

Judd said the man ran back in the house and deputies heard a gunshot, "and a woman scream and a baby whimper."

The lieutenant tried to enter the house but it was barricaded, Judd said.  He then went to the rear of the house and entered, exchanging gunfire with the suspect before backing out of the house.

Judd said three deputies at the front of the house were pinned down by gunfire from the suspect, and other agents on scene opened fire to help the deputies get to safety.

Shortly thereafter, Judd said things went silent and the suspect came out of the house with his hands up. He had been shot once. 

Judd said the suspect was taken to Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center for treatment. While being treated, Judd said, "he jumped up and tried to grab the Lakeland police officer's gun, and they had to fight with him again in the emergency room."

They subdued the suspect and continued treating him. 

Meanwhile, authorities on the scene entered one of the homes, where they found an 11-year-old girl shot several times. The girl told deputies there were three dead people in the house. Deputies found Justice Gleason, 40, along with a 33-year-old female and a 3-month-old boy dead from gunshot wounds. When deputies went to the home behind that one, they found another woman, the 62-year-old grandmother of the 3-month-old boy, shot to death. The Sheriff's Office did not name any victims except Gleason, whose family agreed to release the name. 

The 11-year-old girl was taken to Tampa for treatment. Judd said authorities were still searching for another young girl, "about 10 or 11 years old," but there was no evidence that she was on scene.

Judd said Riley told deputies, "You know why I did this," and described himself as a survivalist.

Judd said he also told detectives, "They begged for their lives, but I shot them anyway."

"He's evil in the flesh," Judd said.

The incident matches the worst mass killing in Polk's history. In December 1997, Nelson Serrano gunned down his former business partner George Gonzalves, 69, and Frank Dosso, 35, Diane Dosso Patisso, 27, and George Patisso, 26, at Erie Manufacturing in Bartow.

Serrano was sentenced to death in 2006. But in 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Florida’s death penalty process unconstitutional and opened the door for Serrano, and others on death row, to be resentenced. He remains on death row awaiting the resentencing.

Lakeland homeowner shoots, critically injures intruder who broke into his house, Polk deputies say

article

(2017 mugshot courtesy: Polk County Sheriff's Office)

LAKELAND, Fla. - Deputies are investigating after they say a homeowner in Lakeland shot an intruder as he broke in through the back shooting in lakeland of his house.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office said the break-in happened just before 1 p.m. Wednesday at a home near Gibsonia-Galloway Road.

According to investigators, the suspect -- later identified as 42-year-old Steven Stillwell -- threw a flower pot through the glass back door and forced his way into the house.

That's when the homeowner said he shot the suspect three times.

The sheriff's shooting in lakeland said the homeowner immediately turned his firearm over to deputies once they arrived.

Deputies began providing first aid to Stillwell, who they said was lying on the floor of the living room. Polk County Fire Rescue then transported him to the hospital, where he is in critical but stable condition, according to PCSO.

"He's lucky to be alive," Sheriff Grady Judd said. "Only Santa Claus gets to come into your house, and Santa Claus is invited."

Detectives said they found Stillwell's shotgun in the backyard, and accessed video from the home that showed the suspect running from a gate in the backyard to the home's back porch.

In the porch area, they noted a set of French glass doors leading into the living room, and said one of the doors had been shattered from shooting in lakeland outside.

"The castle doctrine is very clear in Florida law. A person’s home is his refuge. The evidence in this case at this point indicates that the suspect illegally forced his way into the home," Judd said, shooting in lakeland. "The homeowner did exactly what he had a right to do."

The sheriff said he commended the homeowner for protecting himself and defending his home.
