Broward sheriff’s sergeant shoots self after release from jail – Sun Sentinel

A veteran Broward sheriff’s sergeant is in grave condition after shooting himself Wednesday evening, less than eight hours after bonding out of jail where he was held for six nights on 29 charges related to child pornography and illicit sex.

Sgt. Kreg Costa, 43, was rushed to Broward Health MedicalCenter with a “self-inflicted gunshot wound,” said Veda Coleman-Wright, a spokeswoman for the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Scott Israel confirmed the shooting at 7:15 p.m. “It did happen,” he said. He declined to say more. The shooting occurred at Costa’s home in the 9100 block of Sunset Strip in Sunrise.

“Costa is listed in grave condition,” Coleman-Wright said. “As you can imagine [Costa’s wife] is devastated. His wife and children need our prayers and support.”
