Armed Suspect Spotted Near Elementary School Taken Into Custody

BROOKSVILLE – A two-hour search for an armed suspect has come to an end, after Sheriff’s Deputies located the suspect in front of the Winn Dixie grocery store on Cortez Blvd, near I-75.

The search began in the area of Mondon Hill Road near Cortez Blvd, after a burglary suspect was spotted running nearby. It was later determined that the suspect was possibley armed and dangerous, which prompted the response of numerous deputies, K-9, and the agency’s air unit.

Just moments ago, the suspect was spotted in front of the Winn Dixie and taken into custody without incident. Sources say the suspect was armed with a handgun at the time of his apprehension.

One witness tells RNRF that she heard the suspect scream, “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot!” When deputies approached him with guns drawn.

There are unconfirmed reports that the suspect is 37-year-old Kevin Russell Bearden and that he has a long history of violence.

We will bring more on this story as it develops.

  • G. You are right he is white! which means he did exactly what the Deputy told him to do! Is why he did not get shot! Unlike your Race That Wants to put up a fight & not Listen to his ORDERS. So your point is?

    Tuesday, 30 January 2018, 6:00 pm
  • It would be interesting to hear how he got from Mondon Hill to Winn-Dixie. No way that fast on foot. Wonder who was driving.

  • My God, what in the hell is happening? I know an investigation will take place and I am sure that Tom will let us in on all the details.

    Tuesday, 30 January 2018, 4:22 pm
    • Don’t count on it. Tom doesn’t do follow ups very well. Occasionally he will hit one out of the park, but its not the norm.

      Tuesday, 30 January 2018, 5:21 pm
        • but if it’s unconfirmed, then why publish a full name and ruin him? what if hes innocent?

          • Kevin Bearden is not what all of you judgemental bastards think.. He is a good guy , Dad/cousin/ect…. I have known him all his life.. This guy has not a drop of sweat on him .. But just cuz he was at the wrong grocery store at the wrong time, gives all of you the right to decide to criticize him. To choose put him out on blast.. Oh he’s good to be running and hide n for 2 hours with no sweat.. Also why the fuck would he be at the closes grocery store .. Kevins smarter tgen this BULLS**T ARTICLE.. F**K ALL YOU JUDGEMENTAL WAISTE OF HUMANS !!!!

            • You know he’s got a couple pages of arrests in Fl including felonies. He was carrying a gun. I go in grocery stores all the time and no one arrests me or most people. There are cameras all over the place in case that’s news to you–I think they knew who they were looking for.

        • While I have no issues with RNRF, there was an incident at my home approximately 5 yrs ago, and there was not one piece of news reported that was correct. I was reported as having been killed, the sequence of events were all incorrect, and I found it just amazing that even after many phone calls to correct the article, nothing was done. I am not saying this article is not true, just know that the article I refer to caused many to say and think things that were not true. Just saying…

          • I meant for my comment to go back under what Tom had said. My error, sorry.

          • I was arrested for abusing 911 and it was BS I called for help and they thought that I was my sister and while I was in jail I was abused I am a senior citizen battling Breast Cancer and getting out of the hospital I was fright and had no ride home nor money for a cab the deputies told me at 2 am to start walking rt 19 at 2 am very very confused and told me to turn off my phone the female cop said after me asking not so tight cuffs that I had neuropathy and she’s said I had my tits cut off too, this has been devistating to me I came home bruised and my sternum bone had a 4” contusion to where I was abused my arresting offer I’m sure told them to hurt me. I had seizures because I didn’t have my meds and they said I was faking it and that’s where my abused started.

        • Your all quick to judge him because he got arrested for a hunch on being a robber when he was at winn dixie have any of u ever set in jail because some one said o he was the one i think when you were clearly not the one but the police get there money by makeing the arrest the county gets paid for u being in jail every day the public defenders get paid for representing u the judge gets paid by judgeing u and at the eand of the day your also paying them when u get out and the county dont have enough money to put in the roads or in the schools or even in the public to better your communty why ask your self before u point fingures and judge the next moron u see walking around think about why your little community looks like and every one judgeing is looking wealthy.

          Tuesday, 30 January 2018, 9:50 pm
          • Why are you defending him unless you are a low life like him. Video does not lie and he will get his like the rest of these people who choose to be idiots and live a life of crime. Instead of believing your cousin. Also i know that no one mentioned videos but i for sure know there is one D/A

            Wednesday, 31 January 2018, 1:50 pm
            • Defending him??? Because the police in this county are abusive and get paid too much for the job they do for yalls county.. But you taxes payers are all blind and dont see that they arr just [email protected]$king all of you.. I have never been pleased with Hernando county .. So yes he had a gun on him , yes he has a record but he is not the person this stupid ass article has put him out to be…

              Wednesday, 31 January 2018, 7:42 pm
              • Not to worry I am more than sure he would not pass a lie detector test. You can stay blind all you want both of you however again there are more witnesses and since he has a record for being a criminal no doubt in my mind. as once a criminal always a criminal. probably rubbed off on you two D/A’s

        • Tom if inquiring minds really want to know tell them to go sit in the court rooms for all the court dates . They will learn the out come.

    Tuesday, 30 January 2018, 4:04 pm
    • Bugman, gun was on him when arrested, sources told Tom that. No worries on that issue.and that issue only.

      Tuesday, 30 January 2018, 5:02 pm
    • Based on the report, “Sources say the suspect was armed with a handgun at the time of his apprehension.” Seems to me that HCSO ‘now’ has possession of that handgun and not anyone else.
