Deputy Bill Myers, 64, died at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. The longtime veteran of the OCSO had rejoined the agency to serve part-time after retiring in 2013, after nearly 25 years with the agency. He was rehired on a part-time basis in January to assist with Civil Process. Investigators say Myers had just finished serving a domestic violence injunction to Joel Dixon Smith, 33, of Navarre at Cotton and Gates Law Fire on Plew Avenue around 8:20 a.m. Myers was walking outside when he was shot multiple times in the back, including a gunshot wound to the rear of his head. According to reports, Smith then drove to the Comfort Inn and Suites in Niceville, where he barricaded himself inside a room. The OCSO Special Response Team responded and evacuated the building, setting up a perimeter. After an hour and a half of negotiations, the suspect came out of his room with a weapon at 11:13 a.m. Deputies responded and the suspect was struck and taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center where he later died. No members of the SRT Unit were injured.
