Morning Juice: Police Informant Shot; Political Top Guns in Broward Stay Holstered

Here's your look at what's in today's news:

  • Dwayne Blake of Belle Glade is in jail after allegedly shooting an undercover operative who was taping conversations with Blake for a narcotics investigation. [Palm Beach Post]
  • H1N1 vaccinations have started in Broward and Palm Beach, with people aged 2 to 49 first in line. [WPTV]
  • Ed Portner, facing charges of aggravated assault after pulling on a gun on his daughter, Broward Mayor Stacy Ritter, has opted out of the duel for Tamarac mayor. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • And it looks like Ritter won't be campaigning for higher office, either, now that Ted Deutch has surged to an early -- perhaps insurmountable -- lead in the race to replace Robert Wexler in Florida's 19th Congressional District.  [Miami Herald]
  • Sex offenders must be evicted from a Fort Lauderdale halfway house after a playground opened at Florence C. Hardy Park, but they got a 90-day extension to try to find new housing. Good luck with that. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • DUI manslaughter charges against a 44-year-old man who sped through a red light on Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm on September 25, striking and killing Miguel Martinez of Boynton Beach. [Palm Beach Post]
