A showdown at a popular east Orange County biker bar — with its share of fights over the past few years — led to the stabbing of one man and a deputy killing a gunman Friday.What's your opinion? Is there any chance of Florida losing the crown to one of the up-and-comers? Indiana's trying.
Few details about the shooting were released, but investigators said 31-year-old Jason L. Greene opened fire on deputies Daniel Shapiro and Hector López while they tended to a stabbing victim shortly before 3 a.m. at Betty's Laughing Horse Tavern in the 900 block of North Goldenrod Road.
Shapiro was saved by a bulletproof vest, an increasingly important law-enforcement tool amid a rising tide of violence against law-enforcement officers nationwide.
Gunfire struck the upper back of Shapiro's vest, Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jim Solomons said.
