MCSO  Press Conference releases the findings in the the murder of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joseph Bullock

Martin County, Fl (treasurecoast.com)- The Martin County Sheriff’s Office held a press conference Friday afternoon to discuss the homicide case of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joseph Bullock.

Sheriff William Snyder, along with his criminal investigation detectives and Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, provided a timeline of the events leading to Bullock’s death.

Bullock was killed Feb. 5 on I-95 in Martin County while trying to help a driver stuck on the side of the road. According to Sheriff Snyder, Bullock had called a tow truck to remove Franklin Reed’s stranded car, and Reed became enraged about having to pay for it.

Snyder said Reed ambushed Bullock in his cruiser and shot him while he was filling out paperwork. The sheriff didn’t think Bullock ever saw it coming.

Reed was later shot by another officer, who the sheriff said was off duty and came across the scene on his way to work.

30-year-old Franklin Reed III then shot and killed himself, according to the sheriff.
