Deputy Taylor Lindsay, 25, a law officer for three years and Sgt. Noel Ramirez, 30, a seven-year veteran of law enforcement, the last three with the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office.

The officers were shot dead through the window of a fast food restaurant where they were eating their dinner.


Sheriff Schultz, in a press conference, pointed to the constant demonization in the media and by some activists as creating the environment of hate that leads to police officers being murdered.

At approximately 3:00 pm this afternoon, March 19, 2018, two Gilchrist County Deputy Sheriffs were shot and killed in the Ace China restaurant in downtown Trenton after a suspect walked up to business and shot both deputies through the window. As fellow deputies responded to the scene, they found the shooter deceased outside the business and both Deputy Sheriffs where they died of their wounds.

At this point, it remains an active criminal investigation with no apparent motive or indications as to why this tragedy occurred. Sheriff Bobby Schultz has been on scene throughout the afternoon with his deputies and their families, notifying additional loved ones, and will be speaking to the media at 7:00 pm EDT.

Officials from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and the State Attorney’s Office have all responded to the area to assist.
