Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joseph Bullock was fatally shot on Interstate 95 near Stuart on Wednesday morning.

Martin County, FL – A Florida Highway Patrol trooper was fatally shot on Wednesday morning on Interstate 95 near Stuart.

The incident occurred at about 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 5 near mile marker 107 when Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joseph Bullock was fatally shot while he was assisting a member of the public, WSVN reported.

Trooper Bullock was a 19-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol, according to a post on Twitter by the Florida Department of Highway Safety.

“The entire Florida Highway Patrol and FLHSMV family mourns today for the loss of one of our own, FHP Trooper Joseph Bullock. Please keep his family and his team members in your prayers,” the agency wrote.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office has closed down both north-and-southbound Interstate 95 near the incident scene.

Officials have not released any details about the incident that left the trooper dead.

WSVN reported that its news helicopter flew over the scene and filmed a tarp covering what appeared to be a dead body on the ground next to a Florida Highway Patrol cruiser.

The door of the patrol vehicle was hanging open.

The Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office posted condolences on Facebook before the highway patrol had officially announced Trooper Bullock’s death, WSVN reported.

“The members of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend our condolences to our sister agency, the Florida Highway Patrol,” the department wrote. “Sadly they lost a trooper earlier today in Martin County due to a felonious act.”

That post has since been removed, WSVN reported.

What the hell is going on? Way way too many LEO's are losing their life to these thugs that ambush them. There needs to be harsher sentences or something to keep this from happening. Rest in Peace Officer. God Bless You.!

An off duty Riviera Beach police officer who happened to be driving by when the trooper was shot, engaged the shooter and killed him. Nothing on the shooter has been revealed yet but I have my suspicions.

Witnesses said he killed the trooper because he didn't want to have the car towed.
