A U.S. Postal Service carrier who was attacked by five dogs in Putnam County, Florida, has died, a sheriff’s official said.
Pamela Jane Rock, 61, died at a hospital Monday night, the day after the vicious attack, which a neighbor tried to stop by firing into the air, sheriff’s Col. Joseph Wells said Tuesday at a news conference.
“One neighbor brought his firearm along and fired several shots in the air in an attempt to disrupt the attack,” Wells said. “That was unsuccessful.“
Officers applied tourniquets to stem the loss of blood, but during the drive to the hospital, Rock went into cardiac arrest.
Neighbors and the dogs’ owner pulled the animals off Rock after they heard her scream, he said. The animals were seized and will be euthanized. Additional details about the dogs, including size or breed, were not provided.
Rock’s niece told NBC affiliate WTLV of Jacksonville that Rock had recently completed training with the Postal Service and was in a postal vehicle when it broke down Sunday in a neighborhood about 65 miles south of Jacksonville.
She said that her aunt was horrifically wounded and that doctors amputated an arm in their attempt to save her.
Animal control officials had visited the dogs’ home at least twice in the last three years, Wells said.

July 13, 2022
The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office released surveillance of a July 7 home invasion showing four men invading and attacking a resident on Pinestead Road.
According to an ECSO Facebook post release, three males approached the front door of the home, and when the victim unlocked the door, two of the three men pushed him into the house and attacked him. The third male then pulled a handgun from his pants and waited outside.
“During this home invasion, the victim’s pistol fell to the ground and was picked up by one of the invaders,” the release notes. “The victim ran to the back room of the house where he had another firearm and began firing at his intruders.”
The three intruders “ran frantically from the home to their vehicle where the fourth suspect was waiting and drove off, hitting a mailbox.”
The release noted that suspect Da’Torrance Hackworth was arrested in connection with the home invasion for use or display of a firearm during a felony, possession of a firearm by a felon, larceny, grand theft of a firearm and robbery or home invasion with a firearm.
Armed robbers trap family of 5 in bedroom, then ransack their home
Brooksville, Florida – July 12, 2022
Brooksville, Florida – A family of five was imprisoned in a bedroom of their Florida home while four armed men ransacked the house in middle of the night, according to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.
Hernando County Sheriff’s Office
On 07-12-22 at approximately 2:30 a.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence on Seaway Drive in Brooksville in regards to a reported Home Invasion.
Upon arrival, deputies met with the victim, an adult male, who advised he had just returned home from work in Tampa. When he pulled into his driveway at approximately 2:15 a.m., an unknown vehicle pulled up in the roadway at his driveway.
When the victim exited his vehicle, four males exited the other car. The four males were dressed in black, wore masks on their faces, and were all armed with various firearms. The suspects ordered the victim to the ground.
After demanding money and jewelry from the victim, the suspects escorted the victim to the front door of the residence. The victim unlocked the door and entered the residence; the suspects followed him in.
According to the victim, he and four members of his family (who were already in the residence) were placed in a bedroom and told to remain there. During this time, the suspects took various things from inside the residence.
Once the suspects fled the scene, the victim and his family exited the bedroom and contacted law enforcement.
Detectives and Forensic Specialists responded to the scene to conduct interviews with the victims and to collect/process physical evidence.
What those who conduct ‘concealed carry’ classes do not want you to know: In Florida . . .
NO license is required to purchase or own a firearm.
NO license is required to transport a loaded firearm in your vehicle. (However, one must know how to do so legally.)
NO license is required to use a firearm to defend your life and home.
NO license is required to take a firearms training course to learn how to use a firearm.
Why do we inform you of this?
We are not in the ‘concealed carry class’ business. Rather,we are a non-profit organization that conducts self-defense, firearms training. We want you to be trained in the safe handling, use and storage of your firearm.
Unless specifically stated that firearm/handgun training is included, NO firearm/handgun training is conducted in a ‘concealed carry‘ class. Basically, NO ‘concealed carry‘ class includes any significant handgun training.
Possessing a concealed carry license does not mean you are trained to carry a deadly weapon in public. Rather, it only demonstrates that you paid the State of Florida $97 and passed a background check.
We want you to be trained in the handling, use and firing of a firearm for the defense of your life and the lives of your loved ones.
All our firearms training classes exceed the training requirements for applying for a Florida concealed carry license. Upon successful completion of any of our firearms training classes, an official certificate of training is issued good for applying for a Florida concealed carry weapons license. No other class or training is required for applying for a Florida license recognized in 37 states.
Even if you do not possess a concealed carry license or you never intend to apply for one, allow us to train you in the purchasing, handling, use, firing and storage of your firearm.
There is more to owning and using a gun than just knowing how to pull a trigger.
Not all concealed carry classes are alike.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, “concealed carry classes” do NOT teach how to handle and use a handgun.
They do NOT teach:
the handling of a handgun
the firing of a handgun
the loading, unloading and reloading of a handgun
how manage handgun malfunfunctions
To learn the techniques listed above, you have to take a handgun/pistol training class.
Maybe you or someone you know already took a concealed carry class.Did it look like this . . .
or like this?
If the “concealed carry” class you took did not include a trip the the range and the firing of a real handgun, using live ammunition, firing a minimum of 50 rounds, you attended a certificate mill class, that in all likelyhood, was more of an insurance sales seminar, not a handgun training class.
There is more to owning and using a gun than just knowing how to pull a trigger.
Others conduct classes to qualify people to apply for a concealed carry license. We conduct classes to not only to qualify people to apply for a concealed carrry license, we train people to carry a firearm in public.
We don’t want to train everyone who wants a concealed carry license. We only want to train those who are serious about learning how to defend their life and the lives of their loved ones.
If your concealed carry class did not look like the photos above, you may want to contact us for real, concealed carry, handgun training. Training that prepares you to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones.
