NOKOMIS, Fla. (WFLA) — A Sarasota deputy shot and killed a man found struggling with his screaming wife at an RV park in Nokomis Saturday morning. “It’s an unfortunate situation. It’s unfortunate there was a weapon involved, a gun,” said Sheriff Tom Knight.
The deputy ordered Coleman to get off her, but said he did not comply, and revealed he had a handgun, which he allegedly refused to drop. He even told the deputy to shoot him while placing the gun inside his own mouth.
The deputy reportedly continued to order Coleman to remove the gun from his mouth. Coleman was then grabbed from behind by a witness and a struggle ensued. During the struggle, the deputy said Coleman pointed the gun at him which is when the deputy shot and killed him.
