Police officers shot him through a glass door in his home in the torso, leg, and hand after he apparently wouldn't drop his gun.

"I will take those bullets instead of a fellow officer and an innocent bystander", the cop said during the sentencing, referring to the shooting incident, according to The Florida Times-Union.

Kevin Rojas, 21, was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday for shooting a police detective.

The officer, who was taking his child to school at the time, made a decision to pull Rojas after noticing the wild driving.
