    Suspect Info: Committed suicide



    Deputy Keith Bellar succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained the previous day when he stopped to help at what he believed to be a car accident in Dickson.

    A Dickson 911 dispatcher had just completed her shift when her estranged husband began following her. As the vehicles traveled on West Walnut Street the husband ran the wife off the road. Deputy Bellar witnessed the crash but was not aware it involved a domestic dispute.

    When he stopped at the scene the husband immediately opened fire on him, striking him in the head before he was able to exit his patrol car. The man then committed suicide.

    Deputy Bellar was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he succumbed to his wound the next day.

    Deputy Bellar had served with the Dickson County Sheriff's Office for six years. He is survived by his wife and 6-month-old son.

    Not my agency, but we were called to handle the crash scene. Two motors collided during a funeral precession. One got sent into oncoming traffic and hit a parked car head on. He fataled out. We went from the scene to the hospital to be a liaison for our department since we were handling the crash.

    Richard Boles

    Miami, FL


    Officer David Strzalkowski and Officer Richard Boles were shot and killed after responding to a call in the Aventura area. The call turned out to be a bogus call by a paroled felon. When they located the complainant the man began to struggle with them and gained control of Officer Boles' service weapon. He opened fire, fatally wounding both officers.

    During the struggle the officers were able to put out a distress call and the responding officers arrested the suspect, who had been paroled less then one year earlier. The suspect was sent prison where he later died.

    Officer Strzalkowski had served with the agency for 6 years. He was survived by his expectant wife, son, and father.

    It really does make one think. One has to be vigilant all the time with our job. Then a few weeks ago a rookie was responding to a fight when a man confronted the bad guy breaking into his car. The good guy had a gun and a fist fight ensued. Bad guy gets good guys gun and beats him to within an inch of his life. Rookie cop gets there and renders aid to good guy. Bad guy comes back w/ gun in hand shoots rookie cop in his back. Got him in the upper portion (thinnest) part of his vest. Rookie cop turns around unloads an entire magazine from his glock .45 into the bad guy. Rookie's Sgt. gets to the scene and tells rookie cop to go to hospital and get checked out. Rookie refused to go and told Sgt. He was o.k. and that he wants to get back to work.
    Please be safe out there. People are becoming more violent in the face of officers. I see it here in Florida as officer involved shootings are on the rise.

    this was from last night
    The man shot by an Orlando police officer during a drug sting on Friday night is facing charges in connection with the incident, police said Saturday.

    Ronnery Fell, 27, has been charged with the sale and delivery of cannabis as well as resisting an officer without violence.

    An Orlando police officer shot Fell in the Parramore neighborhood, sparking an outcry among some residents.

    Fell was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Orlando police spokesman Sgt. Vincent Ogburn. Police have not yet identified the officer who fired the shots.
    According to the department, officers with the Drug Enforcement Unit were conducting a sting in the area of South Street and Parramore Avenue at about 10:30 p.m., and Fell sold them drugs.

    After the sale, Fell ran, police said, and one of the officers "perceived some type of threat," and opened fire.

    Police did not say how many shots were fired or where he was hit, but several onlookers claimed Fell was shot once in the back.

    The shooting happened in an alley south of the 2 Scoops Ice Cream Shop.

    Witnesses and friends were adamant that Fell was not armed.

    "He didn't say stop, he didn't say freeze," Teresa Porter, 30, said of the officer who fired. "He pulled his gun as soon as he got out of the truck."

    Resident Ezekiel Johnson, 39, said Fell had just left a party at Johnson's nearby home prior to the shooting.

    Fell is "not known for violence," said Johnson, "He didn't carry a gun, he didn't carry a knife."

    Police advised that the best option when confronted by officers is to stop moving and put your hands up immediately.

    Fell has a lengthy arrest record for charges including domestic violence, robbery and drug offenses. According to Florida Department of Corrections records, he was released in June 2010 after serving time at Gainesville Correctional Institution for robbery.

    Porter and about 10 other people on the scene said they saw officers beat Fell after he was shot, and that it took 30 to 45 minutes for an ambulance to take him from the scene.

    The officer, who was not identified, was placed on administrative leave with pay, as is routine in shooting cases, Ogburn said. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting.

    "They are still processing the scene, looking for evidence up to and including a gun," Ogburn said

    These shooting articles are bringing back to mind the Ten Deadly Errors.

    Big ones here:

    Do a proper search!

    Always watch the hands!

    Don't get that tombstone courage and try to be the hero.

    Don't relax too soon!

    And this isn't one but ALWAYS wear your gear!

    Yeah, it's my department. We were towards the rear of the seven mile possession for Hillary when the storm hit hard. All there say it was a tornado. I was thirteen cars behind Beau when the tree fell on his unit. The hardest part was when the announcement was made at the grave site. Many people did not realize what had happened.

    These things are hard to deal with no matter how we lose a brother or sister. Luckily we haven't lost anyone here in Charlotte this year. I sincerely hope we don't. I went to two funerals in 07 for Shelton and Clark and I pray we don't have it happen again. RIP my brothers and sisters. We'll walk the line down here while you walk it in heaven.
