Our main concern is the safety of the children in that apartment,” Mina said.

Police have not released the name of the suspect or the officer……….Judy Pepper, who lives in the apartment complex, told the Orlando Sentinel that she had fallen asleep on the couch after watching the Sunday night baseball game on television when she heard four loud gunshots. “It just went, “Pop. Pop. Pop. Pop,” Pepper said………….She looked out the window and saw three people carrying a police officer onto the grass. She said other officers arrived, cut open his shirt and appeared to be putting bandages on his neck. Then, the put him in a patrol car and sped away……………”Hell, yes, I was absolutely terrified,” she said………………..Officers evacuated other residents of the complex in the middle of the night. Some were milling around nearby restaurant parking lots on Monday morning, still wearing pajamas. They were later taken to a nearby hotel.

We would welcome your prayers for our officer, who sustained a very serious injury, and for his loved ones and his OPD family.
