A man with the phrase “Cop Killer” tattooed across his chest has been arrested in connection to a shooting involving a police officer in Florida.

23-year-old Virgilio Salgado, was arrested a little more than 24 hours after reportedly shooting at an officer from the Florida City Police Department on Saturday.

Salgado had initially been pulled over by FCPD and opened fire on the lawman’s vehicle, striking the cruiser’s tire.

Ironically, Salgado was found driving the very same vehicle.

After being taken into custody and positively identified through body cam footage, Salgado was processed over several charges, including a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm on a law enforcement officer.

It was noted that Salgado had the words “Cop Killer” tattooed across his chest.

According to Local10, Salgado appeared before a judge over the weekend.
