ORLANDO, Fla. — Orlando police identified a man accused of shooting at officers and leading them on a chase late Wednesday.
Orlando officers in an unmarked cruiser said they noticed the suspect, identified as William Bullock, 36, driving a stolen car.
Soon after, they said Bullock shot at them. A bullet hit the cruiser and officers fired back.
Investigators said Bulock took them on a pursuit that ended in a man’s backyard.
Josh Sapp lives in the neighborhood and told our crews, “First thing we saw, I heard pops in the backyard, inside. I heard, ‘Get on the ground!’ I see flooding in the side gate, they bring a canine unit in, starts barking, next thing I know he’s crawling behind the fence.”
Bullock is facing the following charges: Shooting into an occupied vehicle, fleeing from a law enforcement officer, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer with a firearm.
Police Chief Orlando Rolon said Bullock is a convicted felon. There was a warrant out for his arrest for not making a court date.
Bullock’s rap sheet goes back to 2004.
