After a short foot pursuit, Henderson police recognized the 20-year-old man they shot on Christmas Day. The victim was named Ozzie Seeman, who was in stable condition as of Monday afternoon at a local hospital.
Sunday morning, vehicle burglaries were allegedly committed by Seeman and a 15-year-old juvenile, according to a statement released by the Henderson Police Department on Monday. One of the auto burglary victims reported that a Glock 19 was taken from their car.
Sunday about 8:20 a.m., the couple was discovered along Tiger Lily Way and Viewmont Drive, according to police.
“The investigating officer found both suspects, issued verbal directions that were disregarded by the suspects, and a short foot chase occurred,” Henderson police noted in a statement.
Seeman, according to police, pointed a revolver at cops while fleeing, and he was shot. The adolescent was apprehended after the adjacent gunshot. He is charged with auto burglary, conspiracy to conduct auto burglary, grand theft of a firearm, possession of a stolen handgun, and armed resistance.
The youngster was taken into the Juvenile Detention Center for auto burglary, conspiracy to conduct vehicle burglary, grand theft of a firearm, and resisting arrest. The officer who opened fire has been put on administrative leave until the conclusion of an internal inquiry, according to Henderson police.
