Man Arrested In Connection With An Officer-Involved Shooting In Doney Park Last Summer Accepts A Plea Deal

A man charged with seven counts in connection with a break-in and an officer-involved shooting in July of 2023 in Doney Park agreed to a plea deal Tuesday. Deputies responded to a report of a burglary in progress at 3:10 a.m. on Hidden Hills Road early that morning. The person who called 911 said that an unknown person had broken into their home and had the person at gunpoint. The subject then jumped out of the window and fled the area. When deputies arrived they made sure the victim was okay and started searching for the suspect. At 3:24 a.m. the suspect was found just to the west of the crime scene. A CCSO sergeant went to take 32-year-old Eric Adamson into custody, then Adamson attacked him and was able to get the sergeant into a chokehold. Fearing for his life, the sergeant fired at the suspect, who was actively attacking him, had grabbed at his gun, and was on the sergeant’s back. Adamson was shot once and was taken into custody a short time later. He was formally arrested after he was treated for his injury. Adamson pled guilty to two charges of aggravated assault. He is set to serve between three and four years in prison and up to four years probation, to be served consecutive with the prison sentence. Adamson will be officially sentenced March 22nd.
