Two Florida sheriff's deputies shot to death through restaurant window

Two Florida sheriff's deputies shot to death through restaurant window

The sheriff's offices in neighboring Alachua and Levy Counties were assisting the investigation, as were the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Office of the State Attorney.

Multiple Florida sheriff's offices and police departments are offering condolences to their colleagues in the north Florida county, reporting that two deputies died in the line of duty after an incident in the Trenton area.

"My heart breaks with the tragic news of two Gilchrist County deputies that were senselessly killed today while in the line of duty", Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi wrote in a statement.

During a press conference on Thursday evening, Sheriff Bobby Schultz named the victims as Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Taylor Lindsey, and said they were eating at the restaurant when the shooting happened.

Two Deputy Sheriffs have been shot and killed after a shooter apparently ambushed a restaurant in Florida on Thursday afternoon. In a statement, they said the victims were at the Ace China restaurant in Trenton, Florida.

The first reports of the shooting came in a vaguely-worded tweet from the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office, saying a "terrible tragedy" had occurred.

The sheriff's office said there is no apparent motive yet.

The two planned to compete in the upcoming First Responder Olympics, Sheriff Schultz said. The suspect was reportedly killed and "no suspects are at large", according to the local news outlet, WJXT.

There is an ongoing criminal investigation. "Further updates will be issued later".
