Orlando police are identifying the Baldwin Park man who was shot and killed during a confrontation with officers on Wednesday night.
Police say they were called to an apartment to invesigate a domestic disturbance. When they arrived, a woman said Adam Robertson was barricaded inside their home and he was holding a 10-month-old child captive.
Orlando police negotiators were setting up outside the home in the 54-hundred block of Baldwin Park St. when Robertson emerged, carrying a gun. Police say the 36-year-old pointed the weapon at them and an officer opened fire. Robertson was pronounced dead at the scene. The 10-month-old was found in a crib inside the home, uninjured.
Officer Mike Zambito is relieved of duty with pay, pending the outcome of the investigation. He has worked with the Orlando Police Department since December 2006.
The FDLE and State Attorney will review the case and then OPD will conduct its own internal review.
