Officer Kevin Valencia’s Story

On June 10th, Officer Kevin Valencia, age 27, reported for duty, like he had done the past three years. Officer Valencia was ready like always to respond and serve the citizens of our community in times of emergency.  At approximately 11:30 pm Officer Valencia was dispatched to a domestic violence call in the City of Orlando, upon arrival, Gary Lindsey, a previously convicted felon, opened fire on Officer Valencia.  Officer Valencia was struck in the frontal portion of his face; the bullet traveling through his eye into his brain.

A 21-hour standoff with Lindsey ensued, during this time he killed four children hostages before he turned the gun on himself and ended the standoff.

Officer Valencia was rushed to a local hospital, where he underwent intensive brain surgery.

After receiving emergency care at Orlando Regional Medical Center, Officer Valencia was transferred to specialized care at Shepherd Hospital in Atlanta, where he underwent his 11th straight surgery.
