Charles A. "Bo" Harrison

Lieutenant Charles (Bo) Harrison was shot and killed while on surveillance near a nightclub on U.S. Route 301 in Lacoochee at approximately 0200 hours.

Several deputies who were across the street heard a gunshot and went to investigate. They located Lieutenant Harrison in his patrol car suffering from a gunshot wound to the back. He was transported to Dade City Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Lieutenant Harrison had been shot with a high-powered rifle by a sniper who was in the nearby woods. The shot went through the trunk of the car and struck him in the back.

A 19-year-old suspect turned himself in two days later and was charged in connection with Lieutenant Harrison's murder. He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison with no parole.

Lieutenant Harrison was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War. He had served with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office for 31 years, and his retirement date was only 15 days away. He is survived by his son and two daughters.
