Homestead reservist transports wounded officer to hospital after shooting

Tech. Sgt. Osvaldo Petitfrere, 482nd Security Forces Squadron, who is also a full-time sheriff’s deputy with the Broward Sheriff’s Office, found himself in the middle of a deadly situation. A lone gunman shot at, and wounded, two law enforcement officers on Florida’s Turnpike before ultimately turning the gun on himself and committing suicide. During the incident, Petitfrere returned fire on the gunman, David Edwin Bradley, 23, of Miami Gardens, and is credited with saving the life of Key Biscayne police officer Nelia Real due to his quick actions of transporting her to the hospital in his patrol car.
