Man who shot undercover JSO cop three times gets life in prison

"You are going to need a lot of this", the officer, who was not named, said to Kevin Rojas, 21, while holding up a container of the lubricant during Rojas' sentencing, The Florida Times-Union reported. The cop spotted a Cadillac driving recklessly, driven by Rojas, who was 19 at the time.

The young gunman was shot in the torso leg and hand as cops swarmed the property to apprehend him. He wasn't on duty, but he was wearing a ballistic vest with the text "police" on it, WTLV reports.

Rojas' shots missed the officer's son, AP reports, but ended up hitting the officer three times, according to police. The then 19-year-old fired at the officer's vehicle, hitting him three times.

Rojas began shooting repeatedly at the officer.

Rojas opened fire through the windshield of the officer's auto in March 2016 hitting him three times - in the face, stomach and hand, The Florida Times-Union reports.

He also addressed the defendant telling him: "When I brought the fight back to you, you ran like a coward".

During the sentencing hearing Wednesday, the police officer took out a tube of K-Y Jelly and said, "I got a little gift for you".
