Old Town is a popular tourist destination in Osceola County. I have gone there a few times myself. On Saturday nights, they have the Classic Car Cruise, which is a great car show for old cars.
Last night, several hours after the car show was complete, there was a bit of a fight there involving known gang members. Deputy Rios was called there to break up the fight was attacked and then shot by Angel Manuel Lopez, a known gang member. To say that Lopez has a criminal record is a bit of an understatement.
He has 16 arrests dating back to 2008 for drug offenses, burglary, battery, and armed robberies. In each of those cases, he was either found not guilty, received only probation, or charges were dropped when witnesses wouldn’t testify.
Now he is an attempted cop killer. The justice system doesn’t work.
