July 9, 2014 — Estero

Sgt. Amy Young, 40, was celebrating a friend's birthday the night of July 8.

Around 11:30 p.m., she returned to the Estero Lakes home she shared with fellow officer Luis "Dave" Monroig. Monroig, 37, was angry that she was out so late and had driven home after drinking. According to Young, Monroig yelled at her and shoved her to the ground. The argument continued inside the house.

At approximately 12:30 a.m., Young became frightened and armed herself. Monroig got his service weapon and fired at Young, wounding her in the jaw and ear. He then killed himself with a shot to the head. Read more

Toxicology reports indicated Monroig had been drinking. No charges were brought against Young, who did not fire her weapon.

The Naples police internal investigation found that she should not have driven home impaired and that she should have disclosed her relationship with a subordinate, infractions that warranted a five-day suspension without pay. Young was ruled permanently disabled because of her injuries.

Six children from previous marriages were in the house at the time of the shootings.

This was the 78th police shooting in Florida in 2014.
