LAKE COUNTY, Florida – Lake County Sheriff’s  Office deputies shot and killed a man they assumed was an attempted murder suspect, but they now know they shot the wrong man.

In the early-morning  hours, deputies knocked on 26-year-old Andrew Lee Scott’s (Picture) door without  identifying themselves as law enforcement officers. Scott answered the door with  a gun in his hand.

“When we knocked on the  door, the door opened and the occupant of that apartment was pointing a gun at  deputies, and that’s when we opened fire and killed him,” Lt. John Herrell said.

“Even though this subject is not the one we were looking for when he opened the  door.  He was pointing the gun at the deputy and if you put yourselves in the  deputy’s shoes.  They were there to pick up someone who was wanted for an  attempted homicide.”

Officials said the  deputies did not identify themselves because of safety reasons.  Full Article
