Search Continues For EMT Shooter

January 30, 2011

The search for the man that shot an Escambia County emergency medical technician continued Saturday.

No new information was released Saturday by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

The EMT, whose identity has not been released, remained in Baptist Hospital Saturday in stable condition with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

The medic told deputies that he was retrieving an item just after 9 p.m. Friday from a bag located his ambulance on Hayes Street when someone tapped him on the back.  As he turned around, he was shot.

The suspect was either a light skinned black male or a white male wearing a lime green jacket, according to the medic. The jacket may have NASCAR type patches sewn onto it.

    First time offenders or not, with a weapon they should get 20 years and
    no parole. Who needs anyone on our streets who thinks so little of someone
    else’s life and would kill for any reason.\

    My sentences would be HARD TIME, CHAIN GANGS AND IN SOME CASES A
