“On January 22, 2022, I was contacted as the Southwest General Crimes Unit on call Detective in reference to a shooting.

Upon arrival, I responded to the intersection of South Florida Ave and Schoolhouse Road in reference to the shooting. I made contact with victim, REDACTED, who stated he was driving southbound on South Florida Ave when he drove past a vehicle crash. The vehicle crash had already occurred and he did not witness the crash. THE VICTIM stated he was a former paramedic and felt he had a duty to render aid. THE VICTIM conducted a U-turn and drove north bound until he stopped in the northbound inside lane. THE VICTIM exited his vehicle and began to check on various subjects who had been involved in the crash. THE VICTIM stated one of the vehicles, which he described as a red car, rammed a vehicle head on that he was standing approximately four feet away from. THE VICTIM stated the vehicle then backs up about 6 feet and the driver, later identified as Connor Walker, then turns the car towards THE VICTIM . Walker reaches with his right hand across his body and in his hand THE VICTIM describes seeing a silver reflective object which he interprets as a firearm. While pointing at THE VICTIM , Walker says “Move mother fucker” and before the vehicle hits THE VICTIM the vehicle serves away from him. Once THE VICTIM interpreted the object as a firearm he then reaches into his waistband to obtain his concealed firearm and proceeds to shoot at the vehicle. THE VICTIM stated he was in fear for his life and the lives of the people around him.

Walker then crashed in the south bound median a short distance away from the original crash. Walker then exited the vehicle and walked back towards the crash scene. When emergency sirens were heard Walker fled the scene. The red vehicle is a Red 2011 Chrysler bearing Florida temporary tag DBV5912.The vehicle is registered to a Connor Walker DOB 12/07/1993. Walker’s last known address is Harrison Rd Lakeland, FL 33810.

I made contact with victim2, REDACTED, who advised she was sitting at the left turn light and it was a red arrow. VICTIM2 then felt a sudden impact to her vehicle and her four year old, REDACTED, began to cry. VICTIM2 exited her vehicle to check on REDACTED. As VICTIM2 was out of the vehicle she observed the Red Chrysler intentionally hit her rear passenger side quarter panel as it was trying to flee the scene. VICTIM2 stated Walker appeared to be dazed and out of it but he continued to try and flee the scene. At this time, a bystander came over and helped REDACTED get to safety.

I made contact with victim3, REDACTED, who advised he drove up to the left turn light behind the crashed vehicles. VICTIM3 advised the Chrysler was the vehicle he pulled up behind. VICTIM3 stated the Chrysler was facing southbound in the northbound lane and began to come towards him. VICTIM3 attempted to back up but there was a vehicle behind him. Walker then intentionally rammed his vehicle in to VICTIM3’s vehicles front end. After being rammed, VICTIM3 heard gunshots and immediately left the turn lane. VICTIM3 got in to the southbound lanes and looked at Walker and observed him holding a black pistol in his hands. VICTIM3 watched Walker flee in to the woods on the west side of S Florida Ave whenever he could hear emergency sirens.  VICTIM3 positively identified Walker via photo pack.

I approached the crashed Red Chrysler and on the passenger side seat in plain view, I observed a clear plastic baggie containing a green leafy substance. I seized the green leafy substance and a portion of the substance was placed into an AP-4 Hemp Typification Test Kit, which yielded a blue result, indicating the presence of more than 1% delta-9 THC. Also in plain view on the passenger floorboard was a 16 oz. can of Heineken beer.

Based on the above information I determined sufficient probable cause to charge Connor Walker with FSS 784.045(2) 3 counts Commit Aggravated Battery, FSS 784.021(1)(A).. Agg Assault Deadly Weapon w/o Intent to Kill, FSS 790.23(1)(A)… Poss of Firearm Convicted Felon, FSS 893.13(6)(B) Cannabis Posses not more than 20 grams, FSS 893.147 Poss/Use of Narcotic Paraphernalia, FSS 316.061 Leave Scene of Crash Involve Prop Damage and CO94-28 Possession of Open Container.”
