Marine Veteran Arrested In Florida Officer’s Killing

Everett Glenn Miller, 45, was arrested at an Orlando bar where he had fled after the shooting of officer Matthew Baxter. A second officer, Richard “Sam’ Howard, was in grave condition.

A Marine veteran has been arrested in Friday’s shooting death of a Kissimmee, Fl., Police officer, and there is “not much hope” a second officer he’s accused of shooting will survive, says Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O’Dell, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Police arrested Everett Glenn Miller, 45, on charges of first-degree murder, resisting arrest and carrying a concealed weapon. Officer Matthew Baxter was killed and Sgt. Richard “Sam” Howard was shot and is in grave condition. The officers were investigating three suspicious people about 9:30 p.m. Five minutes later, dispatchers received the first call reporting the officers had been shot. The officers did not have time to return fire. O’Dell said “it looked like they were surprised” by the gunfire.
