BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) — Police have released new video of a domestic violence shooting involving a sheriff’s deputy in Palm Beach on Oct. 12.
According to reports, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Demarco shot his ex-girlfriend in a parking lot before fatally shooting himself.
In the surveillance video, provided to 7News by the Palm Beach Post, the deputy can be seen speaking to his ex-girlfriend, 40-year-old Yuly Solano, in the parking lot of the Inlet Harbor Club in Boynton Beach.
Solano was walking her dog early in the morning when Demarco got out of a car and approached her. He was driving an unmarked car, but was wearing a deputy sheriff’s polo shirt.
As shown in the video, Demarco continued to approach Solano as she backed up, holding her hand to her mouth. Demarco then raised his gun and fired at her before kneeling down and turning the gun on himself.
A witness called 911 and said, “I just seen a sheriff that works here walk up to this girl that he used to date and just shot her, and then I heard gunshots. He shot himself.”
Witnesses said Demarco told Solano during the confrontation, “You treat me worse than a dog.”
Solano suffered three gunshots wounds to the chest and arm, but survived the shooting.
Solano is currently at the Delray Medical Center. Her condition remains unknown.
Demarco was pronounced dead at the scene.
Documents released on Friday showed that Solano had made it clear to others that she was afraid of Demarco, whom she dated for five months. She broke up with him in September because, she said, he was “being racist and very possessive of her.”
This is now considered a closed case.
