Officer’s shooter found in Summerdale

Police yesterday found the man they believe shot Officer Kevin Gorman earlier this month. Nasuil Martinez was pulled from a home on the 800-block of Sanger Street in Summerdale.

After officers arrived at the house to serve Martinez with a warrant, the 20-year-old suspect fired shots at two SWAT officers, who’s protective uniforms deflected the shots. Martinez was pulled from the house after accidentally shooting himself in the neck while negotiating with authorities. Martinez is in critical condition.
