    A Florida man who was looking for cigarettes in his car was shot by police officers last weekend. Roy Middleton, 60, was looking for cigarettes in the car parked at his house when a neighbor called 911. Police arrived as Middleton was still searching, and they ordered him to put his hands up. He raised his hands and turned around when police opened fire, he said. "It was like a firing squad. Bullets were flying everywhere," said Middleton, who fortunately escaped with only a gunshot wound to his leg, for which he was hospitalized. A teenager who witnessed the shooting said police fired with no provocation.
