The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) has fired Deputy Eddie Duran following the completion of an administrative internal affairs investigation into the death of Senior Airman Roger Fortson on May 3. The sheriff’s office said in a press release Friday that it’s administrative investigation determined the deputy’s use of deadly force was not objectively reasonable, and therefore violated agency policy.
