Florida police officer dies two months after being shot on duty


A Daytona Beach police officer who was shot in the head in late June after approaching a man in a car died Tuesday from his injuries.

Jason Raynor, a three-year veteran of the Daytona Beach Police Department, died at Halifax Health, where he had remained in critical condition since the June 23 incident.

On the night of the shooting, Raynor, 26, was on “proactive patrol” when he approached a 2016 Honda and asked the person in the driver’s seat, later identified as 29-year-old Othal Wallace, if he lives in the area, according to body cam footage released by police.

During a scuffle, Raynor was shot once in the head.

Wallace fled the scene and was caught days later outside Atlanta. He was taken into custody with multiple flash bangs, rifle plates, body armor, two rifles, two handguns and several boxes of ammunition.


He was charged with attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer, which has now been upgraded to first-degree murder.

“The outpouring of love and support that all of you have shown to our police department and to Officer Raynor’s family since he was severely injured has been nothing short of amazing,” Daytona Beach Police Chief Jakari Young said in a statement.
