Florida Firefighter Killed in Standoff with Police

November 24, 2014  | 

A Bradenton, Fla., firefighter is dead after a standoff Sunday evening between him and Bradenton Police Department officers.

Police arrived at about 9:15 p.m. Sunday for a domestic situation involving a city firefighter, Donald "Donnie" Wendt that ended with a SWAT team response and gunfire on the 3300 block of Oxford Drive West in West Bradenton.

"He came out to his front yard with firearms, threatened to kill himself and threatened to kill his sister," Bradenton Police Chief Michael Radzilowski told the Bradenton Herald.

Police arrived with negotiators and after talking, Wendt came out of the house with two guns, pointed at officers, Radzilowski said. One officer fired one shot and killed the man, he said.
