A 20-year-old Apopka, Fla., man was arrested Tuesday after police said he admitted shooting up an Apopka police car at a 7-Eleven.
An anonymous tip led officers to Tyler Endsley, who told investigators he was high on Xanax and marijuana when he shot the patrol car with a 10-gauge shotgun about 4 a.m. Sunday, department spokesman Officer Ed Chittenden told the Orlando Sentinel.
Police arrested Endsley on charges of attempted armed robbery, use of a firearm during a felony, displaying a firearm in public and criminal mischief. They say he planned to rob the store at 1117 E. Semoran Blvd.
Security video shows someone wearing a hoodie and carrying a shotgun pacing in front of the convenience store and looking inside shortly before an Apopka police officer arrived to get coffee.
After Saginaw Township Officer Jeff Koenig was injured, he managed to radio for help. "I've been shot!" Koenig said. "I got shot in the face!"
