2 Sheriff's Deputies Are Killed in North Florida

A gunman fired inside a north Florida restaurant Thursday afternoon, killing two deputies who were getting food, officials said.

Remarking on the recent murder of two Florida sheriff's deputies, the sheriff of Gilchrist County, Florida, said law enforcement is being "demonized" in America and that demonizing is creating a culture of anti-cop hatred.

"It was just surreal" to get the call about the attack on the deputies, Schultz said.

The shooter, identified as 59-year-old John Hubert Highnote, was shot dead by responders outside the restaurant.

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

The company has developed a "visual Shazam" augmented reality service, which can identify posters, ads and other products. Apple has invested deeply into adding augmented reality capabilities to the iPhone and other products.

His goal is to hand over a $20,000 check, raised by donations, in honor of the C.O.P.S charity, Concerns of Police Survivors, which raises money for the families of fallen law enforcement officers.

Ramirez was a seven year veteran who previously had worked for the Levy County Sheriff's Office and Williston Police Department before joining GCSO two years ago.

Schultz said he knew both men personally and said he "loved them".

A motive for the Trenton shooting is unclear, but officials say that it was not caused by an incident in the restaurant. According to Friday's statement from the sheriff's office, Highnote was found dead with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound inside his vehicle, which was parked at the restaurant. "Sgt. Ramirez and Deputy Lindsey were the best of the best". "We will also steadfastly remain vigilant and keep a special place in our hearts for the men and women of Gilchrist County who wear the badge so proudly".

Schultz added, "The only thing these men were guilty of was wanting to protect you and me".

Sheriff Bobby Schultz, flanked by deputies and community leaders, addressed the media Thursday evening to recount what happened to his deputies earlier in the day.

He said information about the "coward" will be released by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

The Washington Post quoted Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office saying, "Both our heroes had simply sat down to eat while on duty". My deepest condolences and prayers are with their families as they mourn the devastating loss of their loved ones.

In a tweet later Thursday, the president proclaimed the two deputies "heroes" and offered his sympathies to their families and colleagues.
