A Broward Sheriff's Office deputy is recovering after a 23-year-old attempted to kill him.

Carl Vaugly Auguste planned the attack because he previously had a romantic relationship with the deputy's girlfriend.

"There was blood, but he was not shot, emergency responders determined the deputy's injuries did require hospitalization," said Detective John Curciouto.

The BSO deputy said he was in bed sleeping with his girlfriend at her apartment in Lauderdale Lakes when the Auguste walked into their bedroom armed with a gun.

The former Miami Edison Senior High School student was denied bond and is currently in the Broward County jail.
