Nov. 5, 2010 — Orlando

Deputy Stephen Cook arrived at a 7-Eleven to investigate a report that employee Gibran Flores-Remigio, 25, was stealing from the store.

Roughly 40 minutes later, Flores-Remigio, who had been cooperative until then, began attacking Cook with a pocket knife. He stabbed and slashed the deputy in the neck and face and had Cook on the ground when a customer and the store owner distracted him.

Cook was able to pull his gun. He said that when Flores-Remigio again came toward him, he fired seven shots. Read more
