Orlando police investigating deadly shooting

Orlando police investigating deadly shooting A man was shot and killed late Sunday at a gas station in Orlando, police said. Officials with the Orlando Police Department said officers were called just after 11:30 p.m. to a 7-Eleven at the intersection of Kirkman and Vineland roads. Police found a man suffering from a gunshot wound at the scene. The man was pronounced dead at a hospital. The name of the man killed has not been released. Investigators said the shooting is an isolated incident and they are working to identify the people involved. Police are asking anyone with information on the shooting to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.

State Police were charged with investigating Hamden police officer Devin Eaton and Yale University officer Terrance Pollack, both of whom opened fire on a vehicle stopped near Dixwell Avenue and Argyle Street in New Haven around 4:20 a.m. on April 16. Stephanie Washington, a 22-year-old unarmed woman, was wounded in the shooting.

“State’s Attorney Patrick Griffin and his staff will carefully review the provided materials and determine if further investigation is necessary before a determination is made regarding the lawfulness of the police use of force,” according to a release. “The State’s Attorney would like to thank the CDMCS for their diligence and professionalism displayed during this complex investigation.”

Surveillance cameras on Argyle Street and Eaton’s body-worn camera captured the incident on video, showing the Hamden officer open fire and flee for cover.

An initial call to police reported that the driver, Paul Witherspoon, had a gun, but the caller later admitted he never saw one and police never found a firearm in connection with the incident.

In days and weeks that followed the shooting, organizers gathered in Hamden and New Haven, demanding justice for what happened and for an agency independent of the police to investigate it.

Hamden Police opened an internal investigation 10 days after the shooting looking into whether Eaton violated any department policies that night. Eaton was put on administrative leave.
