**UPDATE** Humberto Delgado Jr. was found guilty of murdering Corp. Mike Roberts and on February 10, 2012 was sentenced to death. Watch the news coverage here: http://youtu.be/1kV0YStP9SA

Corporal Mike Roberts was shot and killed while investigating a suspicious person in the Sulphur Springs area of the city. He noticed the man pushing a shopping cart along the roadway and stopped to question him.

During the questioning the man began to struggle with Corporal Roberts. The suspect produced a handgun and struck Corporal Roberts several times before shooting him once in the chest. The round struck him in an area not protected by his vest.

Corporal Roberts' sergeant pulled up as the man began to flee. The man then pulled an AR-15 rifle from his shopping basket, pointed it at the sergeant, and then fled on foot. The sergeant then provided aid to Corporal Roberts, who was transported to Tampa General Hospital, where he succumbed to his wounds.

The suspect surrendered a short time later after being located by a canine unit. He was armed with three handguns and the rifle when he was taken into custody.

Corporal Roberts had served with the Tampa Police Department for 11 years. He is survived by his wife and 3-year-old son.
