Sheriff deputies in Lake County, Florida are the focus of public outcry after they went to the wrong home to arrest an attempted murder suspect, did not announce they were officers, and then shot and killed Andrew Lee Scott, 26, when he pointed a gun at the strangers at his door.
Scott went to the door armed after he heard pounding on his door at 1:30 a.m. Since the officers did not identify themselves and Brown was not expecting someone at such an early hour, he clearly thought it was trouble. It was.

It is being reported that the police showed up at the man’s house at 1:30 am and knocked on the door. Some reports are already stating, like it is fact, that the cops did not identify themselves. Maybe that is protocol when searching houses at 1:30 am for murder suspects? We now know why it can present an issue.
The actual accused, was later caught…
