Update on Use of Force Complaint

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office was notified by District Attorney Susan Doyle that the SBI had completed their investigation where a deputy shot a man at Lot 61 Dreamland MHP Sanford 12/9/09. Deputies responded to that residence after a man had called 911 threatening suicide. Gilmer Escobar (28) of that residence was shot by Sgt. Ronnie Bass after Escobar pointed a gun at Sgt. Bass. The gun was later found to a toy gun. Bass was cleared by the SBI and the District Attorney of any criminal charges and the report stated Bass’ force was “both reasonable and warranted”.
