Authorities say a central Florida deputy was fatally shot while responding to a car burglary call in Windermere.
Officials with the Orange County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday Deputy Jonathan Scott Pine saw a suspect sitting in a car with a woman late Monday. The suspect started to run and the deputy pursued him.
Investigators said Pine chased the suspect through the backyard of a home when the suspect shot the deputy. Pine collapsed from his injuries and later died at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Authorities said the suspect, identified as 28-year-old Benjamin Holtermann, was found dead in a nearby neighborhood. Authorities said it doesn't appear the deputy fired at him, so they are trying to determine whether the suspect shot himself.
The woman with Holtermann during the initial burglary call is identified as 18-year-old Erica Pugh. Authorities say she is being charged with multiple counts of burglary and grand theft.
Publishers Notes: If you look this man up on Maryland Case Search you'll see he was convicted of a crime and was sentenced to 17 years. It was then reduced to seven years but he was released from prison after only serving FIVE years. The case below is not the case I just mentioned but it proves he is a Salisbury resident.
