Manatee Co. Officials Identify Deputy Involved in Shooting
BRADENTON, Fla. - Authorities have named the Tampa Bay area deputy that fatally shot a man who was wielding a samurai sword during a domestic battery call.
Reports say that 32-year-old Sgt. Brady McGabe, a 12-year veteran of the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, has been identified by the sheriff's office.
McCabe works in the patrol division. He remains on paid administrative leave during the investigation.
Authorities say that deputies responded to a Bradenton home Thursday after a woman called authorities claiming that her son had attacked her.
As deputies approached the home, officials say 31-year-old Terry M. Sellars Jr. came out the front door and charged them with a large sword over his head. McGabe fired at Sellars several times. Sellars was declared dead at the scene.
