60-Year-Old Man Shot in His Driveway

Roy Middleton says Escambia County, Florida, police shot him fifteen times while he was in his driveway and handcuffed him while he thought he was dying.  CNN's Nick Valencia interviewed the sixty-year-old about the ordeal.

Sheriff David Morgan claims a witness suspected Middleton was involved in a car burglary. He says as the officers approached the man, the older gentleman made "hurky jerky" movements and lunged at the officers." 

Middleton denies that version of events. 

"Why would I lunge at someone halfway down my driveway? How I'm going to lunge at them? With what? I was getting ready to do what they asked me. Raise my hands, and I got shot during that."
