Bodycam Footage Release Of Shootout With Florida Police As Deputy Rescues Shot Woman And Three Children
A Deltona woman’s call to a 9-1-1 operator on Sunday ended suddenly with a scream. Silence followed, and then the disconnecting tone of a telephone.
At the same time Volusia County sheriff’s deputy Eric Cheek responding to the call heard the woman’s scream, followed by a gunshot, as he approached the Alameda Drive home.
A body camera worn by deputy Justin Ferrari captured the scene of the shooting, as Ferrari ran to rescue a woman bleeding from her lower body, found near a garage door. Ferrari also rescues three small crying children running out through a back door of the house.
As Cheek approached the home after the gunshot, he heard a man, later identified as Emmanuel Rosado, 26, saying “you are going to die today,” according to a report.
The chilling call for help was released Monday, along with the sheriff's report.
Officials said Rosado shot his wife at their home with their three children inside, and then he opened fire on deputies. About 18 deputies responded to the call, according to several reports from the Sheriff's Office.
Cheek heard more shots and a small girl shouting, “Don’t kill her, don’t kill her,” a report states.
Fearing for the safety of those in the house, Cheek ran to the front door but then saw the silhouette of man approaching to lock the dead bolt.
More shots rang out and Cheek dove behind an oak tree for cover.
Volusia deputies said that Rosado had been arguing with his wife, Victoria Rosado, 26, over custody of their 1-year-old and shot her in the buttocks about 12:37 p.m. Sunday.
Emmanuel Rosado is charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder and was being held Monday without bail.
