Very sorry to hear of the loss of another brother in blue. Prayers for healing for the other deputies wounded. Semper Fi!

Just Awful! And I suppose the gunman is alive and well. Guess we will have to wait to find that out.

Condolences to the deceased deputy's family and coworkers. Speedy recovery to the others. Domestic disturbances are a deadly fact that we all have to deal with. Be safe as possible on every call. 37 Yr. LEO
