The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, along with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, U.S. Marshals and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement went to a trailer to attempt to arrest Hager. Hager was wanted for eight counts of sexual battery on a child in Maryland. When officers arrived, they used a PA system to order Hager to exit the trailer. Hager fired a gun from the trailer. He then came out of the trailer with a black semiautomatic handgun in his hand, and FDLE and JSO officers shot and killed him.
