We've got a breaking story in suburban Boynton Beach where just after 6 a.m., a Palm Beach Sheriff's Office deputy had a confrontation that ended in a man's shooting death.
What we have learned thus far is the vehicle is a 2006 red four door Volkswagen. The vehicle was reported stolen and involved in a hit and run vehicle accident. At this point we have not determined the relationship between the vehicle owner and the subject.
The subject is a 40-year-old white male with a history of Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Robbery, Vandalism, Battery, and numerous other felonies and misdemeanors. Detectives are in the process of notifying next of kin.
The deputy is currently on administrative leave with pay, which is standard protocol.
