A central Florida sheriff’s deputy has been placed on administrative leave after he shot and killed a man in Palm Bay. Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said deputy Yousef Hafza was off duty when he fatally shot 22-year-old Clarence Mahogany X Howard Sunday morning. Howard was taken to a local hospital where he later died.
Ivey says the shooting stemmed from a road rage incident and appears to have been in self-defense.
Hafza has been working for the department less than a year. He has 11 years of law enforcement experience.
