    BSO deputy shot in Pompano Beach
    Gun and jail transport van missing

    By Akilah Johnson | Sun-Sentinel.com

    10:10 AM EST, November 7, 2007

    POMPANO BEACH - A Broward Sheriff's deputy transporting a robbery defendant to court was thrown from his van and shot and critically wounded by the defendant, the sheriff's office said.

    The deputy, who was not identified, was shot several times on Powerline Road near Hammondville Road shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday. His gun and transport van, which looks like a white ambulance marked with the sheriff's office logo, are missing, officials said.

    Rescue crews took the critically wounded deputy to North Broward Medical Center. His condition is unknown.

    The suspect was identified as Michael Mazza, 40, of Coral Springs. Mazza, who was in civilian clothes and not a prison outfit, last seen going westbound on Hammondville, said Sheriff's spokesman Elliot Cohen.

    "This is a man who has nothing to lose," Cohen said. "The best lead we have right now is that van."

    Cohen confirmed that the van has been found outside a Flannigan's restaurant at Southwest 27th Avenue and Davie Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

    Officers responded to Diamond Dolls nightclub, 1401 N. Powerline Rd, early Wednesday after someone reported that a deputy had been thrown from his van and was lying in the parking lot, Cohen said.

    Nineteen schools in Broward County were placed on lockdown as investigators search for the suspect.

    This is the third shooting of a Broward Sheriff's deputy in the last four months. In August, Deputy Maury Hernandez was critically wounded by a gunman during a routine traffic stop. Less than a week later, Sgt. Chris Reyka was killed in Pompano Beach while running license plates.

    Mazza was being transported from a Pompano Beach jail to Fort Lauderdale for 9 a.m. court appearance before Circuit Judge Paul Backman for a Coral Springs robbery. His charges are robbery while wearing a mask, fleeing law enforcement, reckless driving and two counts of armed robbery.

    Mazza's criminal history dates back to 1993 and includes robberies and drug possession.

    Backman, Mazza's attorney, Maurice Graham, and prosecutors listened to updates about the shooting on the radio. Graham said he's known Mazza since he was a teenager.

    At about 9:30 a.m., Graham said he filed a mistrial because his client was absent from court, and "the equilibrium of the case has changed, things have changed."

    Graham last saw his client about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday when they were in court picking a jury for the case.

    Parents at Tedder Elementary School in Deerfield Beach were turned away from school. Sheriff's deputies declined to comment but told moms and dads who were dropping off their children that the school was in lockdown.

    Willy Cleirvin, 49, found out what happened when he arrived at the school in the 4100 block of Northeast Second Avenue to pickup a set of keys from his children.

    "When they find him I hope they put him straight in the electric chair," Cleirvin said. "If he can shoot a deputy, he can do the same to me."

    The sheriff's office is asking anyone with information to call Broward Crimestoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    Florida Deputy Shot During Escape Dies
    Manhunt For Suspect Still Underway

    (CBS) POMPANO BEACH, Fla. A sheriff's deputy was fatally shot Wednesday by a convicted robber who was being transported to court for trial on additional charges, officials said.

    The suspect, Michael Mazza, left the deputy in a parking lot and then escaped in the department medical transport van with the deputy's weapon, sheriff's spokesman Elliot Cohen said.

    The Broward County deputy, Paul Rein, died at a hospital, Sheriff Al Lamberti said.

    Investigators searching for a prisoner who shot a BSO deputy Wednesday have found the van stolen by the suspect, identified as Michael Mazza and it may have been a pre-planned escape. They are now looking for a white Nissan Altima - license number W84 KZY - which Mazza may be driving. The car is registered to his mother who lives in Lauderdale by the Sea.

    The BSO detention van was found about twenty miles away from the original shooting scene in Pompano Beach.

    According to BSO spokesman Eliott Cohen, Mazza, 40, was being transported in a BSO detention van to court where he was on trial on charges of bank robbery and eluding police. Mazza was already serving two life prison terms for other armed robberies.

    CBS station WFOR-TV in Miami and their news at partners The Miami Herald report Mazza was in a wheelchair and somehow managed to loop his restraint chains around the transport deputy's neck, according to a BSO source. The deputy was apparently thrown from the van and shot and critically wounded, then left in a parking lot near the intersection of North Powerline Road and Hammondville Road.

    BSO's Cohen says Mazza was already in the process of serving two life sentences for strong armed robbery. The deputy's missing gun has not bee recovered.

    "We are still looking for an armed and dangerous suspect with nothing to lose", said Cohen. Prison records show that Mazza has a heart tattoo on his chest with the inscription "Break this bitch."

    Cohen told reporters that Mazza was being transported in a medical van because he had been complaining of a back problem but it's unknown whether it was a legitimate back problem or fabricated as part of the escape plan.

    Deputies are searching for surveillance video in the area.

    Mazza is described as a white male, brown hair, blue eyes and about 210 pounds. In addition, Mazza may be dressed for court in a white shirt, grey suit and black tie.

    All Broward County schools have been placed under a precautionary lockdown.

    Parents should not go to the schools to try and remove their children from class.

    Last year, police said, Mazza robbed a bank in Coral Springs and then, while pursued by police, ran into a car containing two women. He has a long history of armed robberies.

    This is the third Broward deputy shot in the last three months.

    Deputy Maury Hernandez was shot in the head Aug. 6 during a traffic stop. He was released from the hospital Oct. 25.

    Sergeant Chris Reyka, 51, was fatally shot as he was looking for stolen vehicles behind a drug store Aug. 10. His killer is still being sought.

    Rest easy Brother.
    Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    I'd guess that he opted to wear a suit to court.

    The media here is saying he was on his way to the hospital to check on a "Back" pain situation. He is also serving two life terms but was returned to Broward for another trial. So the question really is "WTF", over!!!!!

    I hope some deputy hasn't paid with his life because they didn't take this guy seriously.

    Should have done it by video. Why didn't they assign a partner with the transport deputy? Especially when he was escorting a person already serving life for other crap, he should have had a partner. Crappy way to get a policy changed. I hope that deputy rests in peace.

    On top of that, the deputy was 76 I believe. No offense to older professionals, but at that age he should have at least had another person there to call for help if he got in a bind. What a shame
