Florida sheriff Joshua Moyers not expected to survive following traffic stop shooting

A Florida sheriff’s deputy will not survive being shot during a traffic stop, doctors said Saturday.

Deputy Joshua Moyers, 29, was shot in the face and back Friday morning outside of Jacksonville, after pulling over Patrick McDowell.

The 35-year-old suspect was driving a stolen vehicle and is still on the lam, cops said.

Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said doctors determined “there was just nothing they could do for Josh.”

Moyers is being kept alive until a match can be found for his organs, which will be donated.

Hundreds of cops are searching for McDowell, who is believed to have shot a police dog that was on his trail in a rural area, according to The Florida Times-Union.

“This guy is dangerous. If you’re in a home and he breaks into your home and you have a gun, blow him out the door cause he’s like a rabid animal,” Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said, according to the paper.

“He will kill you with his mindset. What he did to that deputy, was uncalled for, unnecessary and he needs to pay for it.”
