Florida, Florida — The Indian River County Sheriff’s officials released body camera footage showing his Deputies firing the shots that wounded a teen armed with a gun who had just fled from the back seat of a car following a traffic stop. In the early morning hours of Saturday, June 11, IRCSO responded to shots fired in Gifford on 38th Avenue.
