I can’t believe this happened to somebody that I knew and went to high school with. R.I.P. Sergant Gary Morales.
Eriese Tisdale learned a jury convicted him of the first-degree premeditated murder of St. Lucie County Sheriff Sergant Gary Morales and other charges that may earn him a cell on Florida’s Death Row.
On Feb. 28, 2013, Tisdale, then 25, armed with a Glock handgun, fired seven times at Morales during a traffic stop in Fort Pierce, striking him in the head, neck and arm.
Morales, 35, was found dead inside his patrol car on Naylor Terrace, south of Edwards Road. He was belted to his seat and never fired his weapon.
