Daytona Beach Blue Alert gunman

Othal Wallace is on the run from Law enforcement agencies for shooting a cop on duty. He was wearing a yellow shirt and a black beanie and was last seen in the 100 block area of Kingston Avenue in Daytona Beach, Florida. A BLUE Alert was shared with a link to the culprit’s identity and his visual identification.

The Blue Alert Foundation supports the families of defeated officials and advances the adoption of a Blue Alert statute in each country to serve and protect the law enforcement community. The legislation, when adopted, promotes apprehension by the public via media and government reports using available information and descriptions of the perpetrator of offenders who murder or badly harm law enforcement officials. 

This alerting system is designed to “speed up the arrest of violent offenders, killing or gravely harming local, state, or federal law enforcement personnel,” accordingly to the Blue Alert Foundation Inc. website.
