Police Officer Robert German was shot and killed while investigating two suspicious people in the area of Conroy-Windermere Road and Horizon Circle at approximately 4:00 am.

When an Orange County sheriff's deputy and an Orlando police officer arrived at the location they discovered that Officer German had been shot. Moments later they heard additional gunshots in the area and used their patrol cars to shield Officer German so he could be extracted from the scene. He was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center where he succumbed to his wounds.

Two suspects in the shooting, a male and female, were found dead across the street both suffering from self inflicted gunshot wounds.

Officer German had served with the Windermere Police Department for five years.

Robbie, I think of you often. I can't believe you have been gone from almost a year. I think of that day in March and wonder if I could have done something different. I know I was just the voice on the other end of the radio but I wish I could have gotten you home safely. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, you are a hero. Rest easy, Robbie. You will always be remembered
