They determined the shooting was justified with the life of the deputy in danger. Lee County Sheriff’s Office launched a single of the incident, praising Russell as a ‘hero’.
Florida man Ashad Russell is being hailed as a hero after he shot and killed a hostile man who was beating a cop brutally in the midst of the street in Estero, Florida. The footage exhibits the suspect pinning down the deputy who was chasing him for over-speeding and throwing punches to his head.
Motorists stopped to look at the incident unfold, and a few took their telephones out and began filming. However Russell determined to take the matter into his personal fingers, and took out his gun as a substitute. Officer Barde could be heard pleading: ‘Shoot him! Shoot him!’ as he struggles with Strother on the ground.
