Manhunt Underway For Florida Gunman Who Shot Officer In Head
Daytona Beach, FL – A multi-agency manhunt is underway for the gunman accused of shooting a Daytona Beach police officer in the head on Wednesday night.
The Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) released an emergency alert identifying the suspect as 29-year-old Othal Wallace.
Wallace was last seen in a 2016 Honda HRV bearing California tag 7TNX532, according to police.
“He should be considered armed and dangerous,” Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood warned in a tweet on Wednesday night.
Daytona Beach police are officering a $100,000 reward for information leading to Wallace’s arrest, according to the emergency alert.
The attack occurred at 133 Kingston Avenue just before 9 p.m. when the unidentified officer responded to a report of a suspicious incident at that location, the DBPD said in the emergency alert.
The officer checked out at the scene over his radio, but stopped responding to other units shortly thereafter, WJAX reported.
Additional officers raced to the scene and found the officer lying on the pavement with a gunshot wound to his head.
He was rushed to Halifax Health Medical Center and taken into surgery, the DBPD reported.
The officer “remains in critical condition,” his department said.
The police department released a portion of the wounded officer’s bodycam footage shortly after the shooting.
Prayer request for Officer Jason Raynor Daytona Beach Police Department who was shot in the head last night around 9pm in Daytona Beach Florida.
