COCONUT CREEK, Fl. – A South Florida shooting and stabbing that was believed to have begun as a domestic disturbance killed two people, and one dog. A police officer and a second person, officials said.
On Saturday, August 24, 2019, at around 7:00 a.m. Officer Renna, 30, responded to 4217 Northwest 57th Drive. Renna noticed the woman lying on the driveway of a home and a male lying on the driveway of another home. The woman was later learned to be deceased and the man was found in “extremely critical condition”.
The suspect saw Officer Renna arrive and began shooting at his patrol car, striking. Renna accelerated the vehicle away from the gunman. He was rushed to the hospital where he is being treated for a punctured lung and other non-life-threatening injuries, Coconut Creek Police Department Chief Butch Arnel said.
Several officers drove toward the suspect identified as Jason Roseman, 44, who immediately dropped his gun. He was taken into custody without further incident, police said. Police had to clear the home after the arrest. A deceased male was found inside and also a deceased Pitbull dog. Inside an upstairs bedroom they located several rifles and ammunition.
A suspicious item, thought to be an explosive was found in the garage of the home, but the bomb squad arrived and determined to be a prop.
