The State Attorney’s Office completed the review of the investigation into the officer
involved shooting of Wisner Desmaret by members of the Fort Myers Police Department on July 21, 2018.

Desmaret is currently facing the death penalty after shooting and killing Fort Myers Police Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller at the Marathon gas station on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard after the officer arrived to investigate the theft of a cell phone.

The actions of the officers involved were “a legally justifiable use of deadly force, in the defense of themselves or others”. Desmaret was shot and taken to the hospital with a non-life threatening injury.

The State Attorney’s Office concluded no criminal charges will be filed against any officers.

The trial of Desmaret awaits a competency exam sought by his attorney. It will determine whether Desmaret is mentally competent to stand trial. The results will be revealed later in the year.
