Florida Police Tell Residents To Shoot Former Marine Who Killed Police Officer


NASSAU COUNTY, FLORIDA — A Sheriff in Florida has told the public that a “rabid animal” is on the loose and if he comes to your home and tries to break in, and you have a gun, to use that gun without hesitation.

Bill Leeper, the sheriff of Nassau County in Florida, described suspect Patrick McDowell as a “rabid animal” and warned residents to “blow him out the door” if he tried to break into their house.

Deputy Joshua Moyers was shot in the face and back by McDowell during a traffic stop on Friday, and did not survive. McDowell was said to be driving a stolen minivan with a female passenger.

A manhunt has been going on in an effort to find McDowell, and a reward of over $50,000 is now on the table. Police say that one of their dogs was also shot during the manhunt.

McDowell was described as a 6-foot-1, 180-pound white male with balding brown hair, blue eyes, wide earring holes in his ears, a tattoo on his left shoulder stating “Death Before Dishonor” and one on his right arm stating “EGA.” He was last seen wearing camouflage shorts, a black shirt, a white undershirt and black tennis shoes, according to the Blue Alert.

One can only hope that McDowell is captured by police, but if he does try to break into a home, it’s up to whoever is inside to defend themselves properly, against a man with military training and the capacity to kill.
