GADSDEN COUNTY FLORIDA: HAVANA — Robert Rodriguez and his wife were at their home down a secluded dead end road in Havana on Tuesday when they heard a “loud bang” followed by multiple gun shots.
He opened his front door and saw a Gadsden County deputy — later identified as Chicara Hearns — crawl out of her patrol car, bleeding and injured. He helped her up the porch stairs into the living room. As she lay on the couch, she told him to “lock the door and call 911.”
“Everything happened so fast,” Rodriguez said. “I couldn’t believe it.”
Taking instructions from a 911 dispatcher, he untied and removed Hearns’ bloody bulletproof vest, and his wife, Melody, applied pressure to a gunshot wound.
Within minutes, an off-duty deputy arrived and rendered first aid. Not long after, the deputy stood her up, walked her to his car and rushed her to Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare.
