Florida State Fire Marshall Fatally Shoots Hurricane Looter

A looter was fatally shot by a state fire marshal.

Panama City, FL - A Florida state fire marshal fatally shot a looter Friday while the looter was trying to steal his car.

WPMI spoke to a witness to the shooting.

"He yelled at me a little bit. He said, oh I’m looting and he opened the door to the police officer’s SUV with the lights going, got in it and shut the door,” Landon Swett told WPMI.

"As I’m crossing the doorway, I look back, saw the officer at the passenger side. I don’t believe the door was open yet. Then I got about three more feet inside, and I heard the shot,” Swett added.

The news station reports that there is no running water or electricity in the city and looting is rampant.

Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the shooting. Neither the fire marshal or suspect have been identified.

Lowlife Ghetto rats are opportunists who seek out the weakest to prey upon . "You loot ,we shoot ...Survivors are shot again". should be posted after a natural disaster. A few more like this SOB will quickly put an end to these cowards.

We had looter taking the little bit people had left after Hurricane Andrew. Looters are the lowest of low, stealing from those in desperate need. Looters deserve to be shot.

What the hell's wrong with Florida? I thought my state CA is bad. I thought NY where I used to live is bad. I thought Chicago is bad. Looting is rampant? Jeez.
