SHOCK: Lake County Sheriff’s Office deputies shot and killed Andrew Lee Scott after they assumed he was an attempted murder suspect, but they actually knocked on the wrong door and shot the wrong man. They were looking for Jonathan Brown.
In the early morning hours, deputies knocked on 26-year-old Andrew Lee Scott’s door without identifying themselves as law enforcement officers. Scott answered the door with a gun in his hand.
“When we knocked on the door, the door opened and the occupant of that apartment was pointing a gun at deputies and that’s when we opened fire and killed him,” Lt. John Herrell said.
Deputies thought they were confronting Jonathan Brown, a man accused of attempted murder. Brown was spotted at the Blueberry Hills Apartment complex and his motorcycle was parked across from Andrew Scott’s front door. Source
This reminds me of the no-knock warrant on Kathryn Johnston’s home, that left her dead and a few officers behind bars for the crime.
