A Teen Shoots A Volusia County Sheriff's Deputy
A teenager is facing attempted murder charges after allegedly shooting a Volusia County Sheriff's deputy.
Luckily, the deputy was saved by his protective vest.
The teen was wanted for the armed robbery of the Kangaroo Express in Orange City last Wednesday.
16-year-old, Dominic Jorgansen-Cloutier was found in Melissa Hammit's backyard.
Melissa said that her daughter was friends with Cloutier and was hanging out at their home, but she claims to not have known that the teen was wanted for armed robbery or that he was carrying a gun.
Deputies showed up at the house around 9 p.m. on Friday and Cloutier hid behind a shed.
Volusia County deputy John Vedder ordered the teen to come out and the teen suddenly jumped out and shot him.
Vedder was not injured and his police dog was able to take Coutier down.
The teen was treated for a dog bite to the hand and taken to Volusia Juvenille Detention Center.
