Wounded Hillsborough Deputy Released

TAMPA – A Hillsborough County deputy who was shot three times while responding to a 911 call last month has been released from St. Joseph’s Hospital and will continue her recovery at home.

Deputy Lyonelle De Veaux was interviewing a woman following the 911 call when she was shot on September 30.

As she was taking 28-year-old Jessica Gibson’s statement, investigators said her boyfriend, 28-year-old Matthew Buendia, came out with a large-caliber handgun and fired at the deputy at point-blank range.

Deputy De Veaux was wearing a bullet-proof vest, but was hit in unprotected areas.
