By Aaron Humes: A policeman and a resident of Punta Gorda Town, who happens to be the ex-partner of the policeman’s common-law wife, were involved in an altercation that turned violent on Thursday night.

Police report that on Thursday, March 14, around 9:15pm, information was received of someone being shot outside the Punta Gorda Sports Auditorium. When they arrived at the scene they met Police Constable Felix Fernandez who told them that he, along with his common-law wife, went to watch a basketball game. While sitting on the bleachers, they were harassed by one Richard Valerio, who is his common-law ex-partner, who was shouting profanities to them including saying “somebody will die tonight.”

Fernandez further stated that they moved to another area but Valerio followed them and continued with his profanities. Fernandez further stated that he decided to leave and asked a fellow officer to escort him to his vehicle.

He said he later observed Valerio damaging his car which was parked outside of the auditorium, and Valerio was shattering the windshield with rocks. PC Fernandez claimed he ordered Valerio to drop the rock but Valerio threw the rock in PC Fernandez’s direction but missed.

PC Fernandez drew his licensed 9mm pistol and fired a single shot in Valerio’s direction. Valerio then ran inside the complex area and was then immediately rushed by Police to the Punta Gorda Hospital for medical treatment for injuries to his lower back.
