Police search for witness in deaths of officers

  • Officer Matthew Baxter and Officer Sam Howard were shot Friday night in the line of duty

Within a few minutes, one of the men, Everett Glenn Miller, shot both officers, then fled the scene, police said.

About 9:30 Friday night, Baxter radioed police dispatch that he was checking on three men he considered suspicious in a North Kissimmee neighborhood, McLaren Circle, which has a history of problems with drugs and violence.

Chick-fil-A posted a photo on their Facebook Saturday of a table set with a meal, bible and photos of Baxter and Howard. The second man told authorities he had a video of the moments leading up to the shooting, according to the affidavit.

The video showed a black man, later identified as Everett Miller, leaning against a auto and getting confrontational with Baxter, the report said. Miller was requesting a sergeant respond to the area.

Miller then walked to the back of the vehicle, and the video ended.

At 9:52 p.m., neighbors called 911 saying they heard three gunshots and saw two officers lying in the street. Employees said they'll miss the officers' faces, who came in to eat on a regular basis since 2013.

Deputies who arrested him say he appeared to reach for a weapon in his waistband before he was subdued.

As six deputies and a Florida Highway Patrol trooper tried to remove him, Miller cursed at them and insisted he "didn't do anything", records show. Deputies said a.22 caliber Derringer with one live round and four spent shell casings was found in Miller's pocket.

"I'm innocent", he yelled.

A report said he began to cry and said "he did not want to live" while pleading with the interviewer to kill him. Miller is charged with first degree murder.

Everett was arrested and taken to the police station to be interviewed.

He told the detectives, "I have done a bad thing".

A second police officer has died from his injuries after he and a colleague were shot while tackling a suspect in Florida.
