JSO officer taunts convicted shooter during sentencing

The Florida Times-Union reports the officer survived being hit in the face and continued to shoot back at Rojas, who ran away and was later apprehended.

A police officer taunted the Jacksonville man who was convicted of shooting him multiple times previous year when he took out a tube of personal lubricant in court and told him "You are going to need a lot of this", according to local reports.

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.

. "You're gonna need a lot of this where you're going little man".

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

In March 2016, the officer noticed Rojas driving erratically in west Jacksonville.

The officer, whose identity has not been released due to the nature of his job, was with his young son at the time.

In October, a jury convicted Rojas of first-degree murder, attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault and other charges. "When I see the auto door opening, I start to look behind me to go open my door".

Local reports did not identify the undercover officer.

He finished by adding to Rojas: "When I returned fire, and I brought the fight back, you started to run like a coward". I see the blood splatter.

The officer said in court that the incident changed his life forever.

Rojas did not speak during the sentencing and his family left the courtroom in tears, according to reports.
