FDLE: Deputy justified in shooting, killing Lake County man

Andrew Scott shot after opening his apartment door to deputies

LEESBURG, Fla. - The Florida Department of Law Enforcement ruled on Tuesday that the fatal shooting of a 26-year-old man by Lake County deputies was justified.

Andrew Lee Scott was shot and killed in July after opening his Leesburg apartment door while pointing a gun at deputies, according to authorities.

FDLE released its review on Tuesday saying that Deputy Richard Sylvester was justified in shooting Scott, which occurred while they were searching for another man -- Jonathon Brown, who had parked his motorcycle outside of Scott's apartment.

The report states that a fresh foot print, as well as misunderstanding a neighbor, led deputies to Scott's front door instead of Brown's.

According to the report, Sylvester fired a total of six shots after Scott opened the door with his gun pointed at Sylvester's face.
