An illegal alien from Haiti has been accused of shooting a Florida police officer in the head, leaving him in critical condition.
Wisner Desmaret, a 29-year-old illegal alien from Haiti, is facing eight felonies including attempted first-degree murder after he allegedly shot and nearly killed Fort Meyers Officer Adam Jobbers-MIller in a standoff with police, according to FOX 4 Now.
When police intervened to break up a fight between the illegal alien and a group of men at a gas station, Desmaret began shooting at police, hitting and critically injuring Jobbers-Miller.
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency confirmed in a statement that Desmaret, who has been arrested multiple times in the past, has placed a detainer on the illegal alien.
“ICE filed a detainer on Wisner Desmaret, 29, a citizen and national of Haiti on July 22, after his arrest by the Fort Myers Police Department on charges including attempted murder of a law enforcement officer,” an ICE spokesperson said.
Fort Meyers Police Department officials say Jobbers-Miller is in stable but critical condition following the shooting.
