No Charges for Leesburg Deputy
Some outrage was expressed in the previous thread about deputies doing wrong. Apparently the prosecutor found no wrong doing and is not going to press charges. Deputies knocked on Scott's door while looking for a suspect and Scott answered with a gun that was pointed at a deputy who shot Scott multiple times in apparent self defense.
In regard to concerns of the previous thread...
Deputy Sheriff Richard Sylvester fired at Scott after Scott pointed his gun at the deputy's face, the investigation found. When knocking on Scott's door, Sylvester didn't announce he was a deputy. He wasn't required to identify himself as law enforcement because he didn't intend to forcibly enter the apartment, prosecutors said.
