Polk sheriff: Suspect who 'executed' deputy was hit by 68 of 110 bullets fired

Face to face with an armed man suspected of killing a Polk County deputy sheriff, SWAT officers riddled his body with 68 bullets. Altogether, nine officers fired 110 times Friday at Angilo Freeland, who Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said "executed" one of his deputies.

"That's all the bullets we had, or we would have shot him more," Judd said after autopsy results were released Saturday.

The slain deputy, Matt Williams, 39, was shot eight times Thursday when he encountered the killer who had fled into nearby woods after a routine
traffic stop.

Good on them. Saves the taxpayers the money of putting the jark on trial and keeping him fed, watered, and housed until his sorryass expires.

It's too bad the other 42 bullets didn't get him too.

68 out of 110 bullets hit the target?

Guess they'll be at the shooting range on their days off for a while.

I think they were just at a shooting range and in thick brush there are going to be a few more misses than normal .....

Where was it that the two officers engaged a suspect, both emptied their semi-autos at point blank range and totally missed? I bet those two had a lot of explaining to do.


22 shots, and they didn't even hit the suburban!
