Shooting Suspect Arrested After Bullet Injuries To 5-Year Old

Busy Police Work In City This Week
CLEWISTON, FL. -- City of Clewiston Police Don Chief Gutshall reports CPD officers responded to Hendry Sheriff’s Deputies calls for assistance on Redish Circle following a shooting a week ago on Sunday night. 

The Clewiston K-9 Officer and his partner were called upon to locate the shooter. Following a long trail across a canal and fields, the suspect was located and captured where he was hiding in a home. The shooting resulted in bullet injuries to 5 year old child and an adult male. Gutshall says "Excellent work by K-9 Handler Jackie Garrett and his partner, Javiar."

Gutshall reports two brief investigations on older cases were wrapped up this week. One resulting in the arrest of a man for multiple bicycle arrests, the other an arrest for burglary. 

In other calls there was a fairly serious dog bite occurence in the Aztec Trailer Park. It appears as though the victim was at fault as the animal was properly restrained, fenced in, and up to date on all immunizations. The child was on the dog owner’s property without permission or supervision, said the report.

A trailer was stolen from a residence on East Alverdez Tuesday night. The case has been turned over to CID.

The Chief says much of the department's annual training requirements have been met over the past two months. The remaining few needs are to be handled before September 1 as the department tries to get those training classes out of the way during the relatively slower summer months.

A brief synopsis of the week’s police activity:

31 Traffic Citations Issued
32 Arrests Made
