Shootout in Martin County

SUSPECTED DRUG DEALER FROM RIVIERA BEACH WAS SHOT BY MARTIN COUNTY SHERIFF’S NARCOTICS DETECTIVES AFTER ATTEMPTING A VIOLENT GETAWAY TO AVOID ARREST.

23-year old Horrace Edmond Brown rammed at least four Martin County Sheriff’s vehicles, then attempted to run down an undercover narcotics agent before being shot by detectives. Brown, of Riviera Beach, then excited his car and ran to a near-by McDonalds, where he was caught.

It began in the parking lot of a hotel on Lost River Road just before 4pm. Detectives were conducting an investigation into Brown. He was there to sell crack cocaine and hydromorphone. When detectives approached the suspect, he used his car to ram their police vehicles. Brown than attempted to run down a detective who was outside of his car. Two detectives fired shots hitting Brown. The team’s medic immediately rendered aid to Brown, while awaiting fire rescue. Brown was taken to Lawnwood Hospital where he remains in stable condition.

Brown has been charged with two counts of fleeing and eluding, four counts of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, attempted sale of cocaine and hydromorphone, and resisting arrest.
Horace Brown has a criminal history which includes 8-felony arrests. He was recently arrested in Palm Beach County and charged with murder while engaged in a felony, and attempted murder with a firearm.

The State Attorney’s Office is conducting an investigation into tonight’s shooting. The detectives involved in the incident were not injured, and are expected to return to work this week.
