Law enforcement members from across Florida and all the way up the east coast will be in Fort Myers today to remember a police officer who was shot and killed in the line of duty.
The funeral for Fort Myers Police Department Ofc. Adam Jobbers-Miller will take place inside the Germain Arena in Estero at 12 p.m., following a viewing on Sunday where thousands waited outside a local funeral home throughout the evening for a chance to say their final goodbyes.
Jobbers-Miller, who was a firefighter in his home state of New Jersey before moving to Florida and joining the department in 2015, was shot in the head while trying to capture a man who allegedly stole a cell phone from a car outside a gas station on July 21st.
The 29-year-old officer died one week later as a result of his injuries.
The suspect shooter, 29-year-old Wisner Desmaret, remains behind bars.
