On Wednesday, December 8, 2010, Deputy Brandon Coates was shot and killed while making a traffic stop near the intersection of South Nashville Avenue and 45th Street at around 8:30 pm. Moments after radioing in the traffic stop 911 dispatchers received calls stating a deputy had been shot and received a description of the suspect's vehicle.

The vehicle was located at a nearby apartment complex. During the ensuing search for the suspect, the man's body was found suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Deputy Coates had served with the Orange County Sheriff's Office for 4½ years and was assigned to the Tactical Anti-Crime Unit. He is survived by his wife, who also serves as a deputy with the agency, his mother and brother.

On December 13th and 14th, 2010, the central Florida community gathered to honor a hero for his selfless service to his community and country.

Photographs of Brandon Coates' memorial services featured in this book were taken by Amanda Kern ( and Gian Carlo Brand ( ).
