ORLANDO, Fla. —
We are getting the first look at 63-year-old William Cates, who police say shot twice at an officer working traffic enforcement in Baldwin Park.
Cates suffered injuries after a fight with Officer Kevin Roberson who had to kick him in the head after Cates pulled out a gun, according to police.
This all started after Cates was given a traffic ticket, then returned on a scooter wearing a ski mask and packing the firearm.
After the fight, Cates was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center. No one was hit by the gunfire, though one bullet hit a nearby home.Police later learned that Cates admitted to not having a permit to carry a gun.
