FBI Agent Cleared in Fatal Shooting at Fla. Military Base

A team of investigators has cleared an FBI agent of any wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a veteran last May 19 at the MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla.

In a press release, the FBI stated that the agent, whose name was not released “operated within the scope of the FBI’s deadly force policy and did not violate any state or federal laws.”

The FBI said the investigation into the shooting was conducted with the assistance of the Tampa Police Department, Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Air Force Security Forces and a deployed team of FBI investigators from the FBI’s Inspection Division in Washington.

The FBI said it found that the agent shot and killed Ronald J. Bullock, who was armed with a knife, charged the FBI agent, and ignored repeated commands to surrender his weapon.

The FBI said “the agent involved in the incident feared for his life, and in accordance with his training, fired in self-defense, resulting in Mr. Bullock’s death.”

Authorities said last year that Bullock was a guest at the base’s family camp, which is for recreational vehicles. At some point, the vet got into an altercation and then fled on his motorcycle with base security in pursuit shortly after 6 p.m. At that point, the base locked all the exits.
