North Florida deputies shot dead through restaurant window

Debbie Busser

"The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office expresses its honest condolences to the two Gilchrist County, FL deputies shot and killed in the line of duty today", the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said on Twitter. "No officers engaged with the assailant".

Trenton, a small town in Gilchrist County, has a population of about 2,000.

Officials held a press conference on the two Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office deputies who were killed in the line of duty while stopping to eat lunch on Wednesday.

Gilchrist County Sheriff Bobby Schultz named the two deputies as Noel Ramirez, 30, and Taylor Lindsay, 25.

The front windows of the restaurant did not appear to be blown out. Schultz said he rushed to the scene as soon as he heard about the shooting.

"Those two heroes walked in there to have a meal together, and they were ambushed", said Lt. Tummond.

The Columbia County Sheriff's Office offered its support in a tweet.

Gilchrist County police responded to the scene after receiving a 911 call from the restaurant. In 1978, he was accused of carrying a concealed weapon, but that charge was also dismissed.

Highnote had a criminal history in Pinellas County, Florida, from 1994 when he was accused of misdemeanor criminal mischief but the case was later dismissed, Heavy.com reported.

"Sgt. Ramirez and Deputy Lindsey, let's keep them in our thoughts and prayers", said Matthew Rexroat, chief of public safety for Trenton.

"What do you expect happens when you demonize law enforcement to the extent it's been demonized?"

"Understand that the focus is on the Gilchrist County family and their fallen heroes", said Lt. Scott Tummond with the Levy County Sheriff's Office. "They just wanted to do their job". He then went into his vehicle and killed himself. "It's inexplicable", State Attorney Bill Cervone said of the suspect.

Even so, there was a big group of people who didn't know the two men, but wanted to honor the sacrifices they made for the badge. But it also illustrates why Gonzalez' run means what it does to those in and around law enforcement, that when an officer is killed in the line of duty there are often loves ones left behind, and these efforts can at least start to bring them peace in the face of such tragic loss. "And that's good individuals, good deputy sheriffs". "They were men of loyalty, God-fearing They gave their lives so that we can all be safe".
