Members of the Wauchula Police Department, Hardee County Sheriff’s Office and Hardee County Fire Rescue responded to a report of a dangerous shooting in the area of Advance Auto Parts this morning at 6:05am. Upon arrival officers discovered a male subject, who had attempted suicide, in the parking in the parking lot of Advance Auto Parts. Immediate medical care was provided, and the patient was transported to Florida Hospital Wauchula where he was stabilized and transferred to a local trauma center via life flight. The patient was not a resident of Hardee County and currently does not appear to have local ties to our community. We have members of the Wauchula Police Department with his family at the hospital and will not be releasing any further information as it remains an ongoing investigation and to ensure the privacy of the family.

If you would like to help support the relief efforts you can drop items off at Hardee County Fire Rescue Station 1 (KD Revel Rd) or Station 3 (Zolfo Springs). All items need to be dropped off before October 17th to give time to prep donated items for transport.

While it is understandable we all want to do everything we can to help provide for those who have been impacted in both North Carolina and North Florida, please DO NOT provide donations and/or supplies to anyone you do not know or who does not represent a reputable organization.

This handsome fellow decided he wanted to become a K9 partner today to Officer Cohen. He was found on S 7th Ave in the area of W Bay St. He's very friendly and loves car rides but he didn't have a collar so we have been unable to locate his owner. If you know who he belongs to please have them contact the Wauchula Police Department at (863)773-3265.
