A police officer who was widely hailed has a hero after the deadly June 2016 shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando has been let go from the Eatonville force.

Delgado was among the first police officers on the scene June 12, 2016, after a gunman killed 49 people and left 68 wounded.

'I don't need to be a police officer with my gun belt and so forth to do those little tasks, ' Delgado said before Tuesday's meeting to the Orlando Sentinel.

A spokesperson from the Eatonville Police Department told WKMG that the town of Eatonville had terminated Salgado's employment effective December 31, but declined to offer any further information.

The Eatonville Town Council agreed unanimously Tuesday night to pay Cpl.

Delgado said due to his diagnosis, he has been assigned to light desk duty for about eight months.

The officer claims the department made the decision after a doctor found him unfit to return to full duty because of post-traumatic stress disorder.

He has been a member of the Eatonville Police Department for over nine years. "He saved my life, and for them to just do what they're doing in front of my face, it's a slap to my face as well".

As it stands now, he will only receive 42 percent of his salary starting when he's 55 years old. On Monday, however, Delgado said he was told he's being let go. Another six months and he would become vested in the pension system, able to collect 64 percent of his $38,500 salary and benefits for life.

According to the Sentinel, the police department wouldn't confirm the reason for Delgado's dismissal but said they'd reached an agreement to end his employment.

Chief Administration Officer Roger Dixon would not provide details on the decision but said "facts" had caused him "as an administrator to be concerned for the health and safety of the citizens passing through town".

"I came back physically, but not mentally", he said. "But some pictures are bigger than we all know".

Colon, 26, was shot three times in the leg and his bones shattered as desperate club-goers trampled him in a bid to get out of the club. He said it's a disability for which he believes first responders should be covered and compensated. It may be heard by the legislature in the session beginning January 9.

"It's a small town ..."

'I never thought I would have gotten to this point. "I didn't think I was going to be treated this way".
