Ocoee police officer sentenced for firing into wrong house

Carlos Anglero found guilty in 2016 shooting

OCOEE, Fla. – A Central Florida police officer who fired into a house after being sent to a wrong address will not have to serve any jail time.

Ocoee police Officer Carlos Anglero was sentenced Thursday to three years of probation and 100 hours of community service in connection with his January conviction of shooting into a building.

A dispatcher sent officers to the wrong address at 1 a.m. on Feb. 6, 2016, for a domestic disturbance. They pounded on the door, but the homeowner said they didn't announce themselves as police.

Another officer saw the homeowner inside with a gun and opened fire. Anglero then fired. No one was hit.

Anglero blamed the dispatcher and said he had no regrets.
