Sergeant Mike Wilson was shot and killed while responding to a domestic violence call at an apartment complex on Veterans Boulevard in Port Charlotte.

The call involved a man in a physical fight with his wife and son. As Sergeant Wilson walked up to the stairs to the apartment the male subject emerged and opened fire from the second floor landing, striking Sergeant Wilson in the chest above his vest.

The subject then committed suicide.

Sergeant Wilson had served with the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office for 20 years. He is survived by his wife and three children.

It was an honor to work besides you, Sgt. Wilson. You were a great cop, and I remember several nights responding to do searches for you - having you show up to back up Eric and I when we'd be out with someone in Punta Gorda, way on the outskirts of civilization - I always thought it was awesome that when everyone else was keeping busy, you would always keep your ears open when we'd stop out with someone -you never got too far away in case we needed anything. It was so devastating to hear that you made the ultimate sacrifice- but I'm no surprised that you died a hero. That you were able to warn other officers of danger even after being shot.

You will be greatly missed by the entire CCSO family as well as fondly remembered by those of us who have retired, moved or gone on to work elsewhere. God speed, brother. We'll take it from here.
