Justin Oakes came into the sheriff's office looking for a place to stay at around 10:30 p.m. He asked deputies for water, which they provided, and then remained in the vicinity of the sheriff's office until 2 a.m. Oakes went inside the restroom where he called 9-1-1 several times and claimed he had been poisoned. A deputy and commander attempted to enter the restroom, but he pushed against the door, not allowing them inside. He was shocked with stun guns, but then allegedly stabbed the deputy twice in the leg and wounded the commander. Oakes was shot and killed.
