Police in Florida have told residents to shoot a former US marine who is on the run after allegedly killing a sheriffs’ deputy during a traffic stop.

Bill Leeper, the sheriff of Nassau County in Florida, described Patrick McDowell as a “rabid animal” and warned residents to “blow him out the door” if he tried to break into their house.

On Monday morning his department raised the reward for Mr McDowell’s capture to $54,000 after deputy Joshua Moyers died of his wounds on Sunday night.
