DELTONA, Fla. (CBS12) — The Christmas holiday had a tragic start for a family in central Florida.
The sheriff’s office said the 73-year-old shooting victim called 911 to say her younger brother was being irrational and verbally abusive. The man also had a gun and some sort of mental illness authorities said.
As she walked out of the house, the sheriff’s office said the suspect rushed out and shot her in the shoulder. The bullet ricocheted and struck her in the face.
At that moment, deputies opened fire on the suspect, killing him. He’s been identified as 65-year-old Harvey Cantrell.
