The family of a slain Okaloosa County sheriff's deputy recently sued the hospital where the man who killed the officer escaped from. The lawsuit alleges that the hospital was grossly negligent in allowing the mentally ill person to escape. The man had been forcefully put in the hospital after his brothers became concerned that he was mentally ill and dangerous. The man threatened the security guard in his hospital room and then escaped, fleeing to his childhood home where he had access to weapons. A police force containing the slain Okaloosa County sheriff's deputy attempted to take the man back to the hospital, but the man shot and killed the officer before turning the gun on himself.
