Raymond Herisse -- the 22-year-old Boynton Beach man shot and killed over Memorial Day weekend on the streets of Miami Beach -- has been identified by Boynton Beach police as the gunman in a November shooting at a BP gas station.

Police say Herisse tried to hit several police officers on the street with his car during Miami's Urban Beach Week and ended up dead after police fired more than 100 bullets at Herisse -- leading to 12 officers being put on administrative leave.

When the Boynton Beach cops were reading a newspaper this morning, they happened to recognize Herisse.

Boynton Beach police say they called in the victim of the November 21 gas station shooting and he picked Herisse out of a photo lineup "without hesitation."

A 30-year-old clerk at the gas station was shot at twice that morning by two men, one of those bullets striking him in the chin, police say.

The clerk shot back, but police don't know whether either of the men were struck.

Police say Herisse lived "just down the street from the BP gas station" at 645 W. Boynton Beach Blvd.

The cops say they are "extremely confident" that Herisse was the gunman, although they are still searching for an accomplice in the shooting.

In the Miami shooting, it wasn't initially clear if Herisse was armed while being shot at by police until they found the gun in his car -- three days later.

That's led to speculation that if he did have the gun, it may not have been out at the time, although his car could certainly qualify as a deadly weapon.

Herisse had a lengthy criminal record -- including prison time -- although his record doesn't reflect any violent crimes: possession of cocaine and hydrocodone, driving without a license, failure to appear in court, loitering, and giving a false name to a police officer.

How could the victim of the Boynton Beach shooting identify Herisse? Both of the assailants were wearing full head cover.

100 shots fired at Herisse? Holy shit. That might be a case of overkill.

i don't care if it was osama bin laden, there's no justification for turning an american street into a war zone over a single, unarmed man. the police just don't have that right.

actually the police do have the right. In fact, the police acted appropriately to a dangerous situation. Police,soldiers etc. are not "trained" to kill but rather are trained to stop the aggressive behavior that are confronted with. This Rhodes Scholar was ordered, numerous times to stop, he didn't. The car "IS" a deadly weapon that could have injured or killed police and bystanders alike. They order him to stop, when he doesn't they fire upon him, they continued to fire until the the vehicle stopped. Overkill would be continuing to shoot well after the threat was over, they did not. And finally, I really don't care. This wannabe was going to kill someone eventfully and was going to be killed himself, wither by cop, a victim who fought back or by another thug. The good thing is, hopefully he was killed before he got a chance to have too many chidrun's....Yawn, bored with this already. Bottom line, stop when the po-po say so.
