    Suspect on bike killed in gun battle with 2 deputies
    Posted: 3:38 p.m. Saturday, June 26, 2010

    LAKELAND, Fla. — Two deputies confronted a man on a bicycle early Friday morning when he allegedly pulled out a gun and started shooting.

    According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, Deputy Mike Braswell and Deputy Paul Fairbanks III confronted a suspicious, white male as he was riding a bicycle. After being stopped because his bike didn't have lights or reflectors on it, the suspect was initially cooperative. However, when the deputies asked for permission to search him, he pulled out a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun and opened fire on the deputies.

    The deputies were saved by bulletproof vests.

    “He just busted out with this firearm all of a sudden without any warning at all,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said.

    Both deputies were shot, but managed to returned fire and the suspect fell to the ground. The sheriff said 21-year-old Matthew Tutt then grabbed his semi-automatic handgun and began shooting again.

    “I hear the gunshots go off, ‘Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!’ And I heard another set of gunshots a few seconds later,” eyewitness Dayton Carr said.

    Deputy Mike Braswell, 32, was shot in the extremities, and Deputy Paul Fairbanks III, 58, was shot in the stomach and arm.

    First PD I worked for didn't even supply sam browne or gun,second department supplied uniforms equipment and second chance vests,that was definitely a situation that had the Officers not been wearing vests the outcome would have been much different

    One or more of the shots proved fatal and Tutt died in the street.
    “This ended today as it should. Our deputies are alive and the guy who shot these deputies is dead,” Judd said.
    Hours after the shooting, a bio-hazard team was still on the scene mopping up blood left on the street. At least 30 shell casings rained to the ground and investigators put evidence markers next to them.
    “I was surprised. I was surprised it all happened,” Browning said.
    The gun was visible under an unmarked patrol car.
    Both deputies were transported by EMS to Lakeland Regional Medical Center where they were being treated for their injuries. Deputy Fairbanks underwent Friday surgery.
    “Once again, this is a classic example of what a dangerous job these men and women do everyday,” Sheriff Judd said.
    The sheriff said Deputy Fairbanks planned to retire sometime soon. Both deputies are expected to survive.
    Deputies told WFTV Tutt was a gang member. He was arrested in the past for aggravated assault with a weapon and drug possession.
    Walk quietly and carry a big stick.

    Glad this dirtbag is dead, but sorry two deputies had to be injured to end the dirtbag's career.

    Paragraph from article:

    Both deputies were shot, but managed to returned fire and the suspect fell to the ground. The sheriff said 21-year-old Matthew Tutt then grabbed his semi-automatic handgun and began shooting again.

    ^^^This is a startling statement.^^^^^^^^^^

    After sustaining MULTIPLE gunshot wounds the Knuckledragger began shooting again.So sorry he DIED as a result of his thuggery.(pun added)


    If a BG dies as the result of pointing a gun at me, then he has merely succumbed to an occupational hazard of being a thug

    Excellent observation: he was shot, fell to the ground, but the fight wasn't over yet.

    Shoot until the threat is over, not just until the threat is down.

    And the BG's mother talked about what a good kid he was. Yeah, right. Another parent not facing reality that her 21 yr. old son is a criminal with a record. States she wants to know the truth about what happened. Truth is he got what he deserved.

    Angry

    Deputies told WFTV Tutt was a gang member. He was arrested in the past for aggravated assault with a weapon and drug possession.[/QUOTE]

    Wonder why he was not incarcerated at the time of his last and final offense ?

    Why did he have a gun. He had a felony record and the law doesn't allow convicted criminals to own a gun. Perhaps gun laws don't work?
