Delgado indicted in officer’s death

September 4th, 2009 by

TAMPA – A former police officer has been indicted in the death of a Tampa police officer.

A grand jury indicted Humberto Delgado Jr. Thursday on charges of first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, carrying a concealed firearm and depriving an officer of means of protection or communication.

The 34-year-old is scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 10.

Delgado has been held without bail since his arrest last month in the slaying of 38-year-old Cpt. Mike Roberts. Police said Roberts was shot once after confronting Delgado, who was pushing a loaded shopping cart on the street on Nebraska Avenue.

Police say Delgado, an Army veteran, was carrying three handguns and an assault rifle.
