Columbus Officer Found Dead in Property Room, Suicide Suspected

November 11, 2013  | 

Columbus, Ohio, police are investigating the death of a police officer from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound yesterday at the police property room on the South Side, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Police summoned Columbus fire paramedics at 5:20 p.m. to the Police Division’s property room. Paramedics pronounced the officer dead at 5:29 p.m., the Columbus Fire Division reported.

The officer was identified as Kevin D. Myers, 46, a 22-year veteran of the force who worked in the Crime Scene Search Unit. Police said Myers used a personal gun, not one of the hundreds that are kept at the property room while cases are pending.

Detectives on the team that handles police-involved shootings are handling the investigation.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Kevin's family. Kevin was an amazing friend and a great man. I will forever hold all the great memories we spent together during high school and college. Godspeed, my friend.

Our prayers are with his family. As a family member of a recently fallen officer my heart feels your great pain. We know the great sacrifices the family as well as the officer makes to try to keep peace in this world. May you be blessed in your lives. We honor his sacrifices.
