    TRENTON, Fla. — Two deputies in Trenton, Florida were killed in the line of duty on Thursday.

    Around 3 p.m., two Gilchrist County Deputy Sheriffs were shot and killed in the Ace China restaurant in downtown Trenton, after a suspect walked up to the business and shot both deputies through the window.
    According to the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, when fellow deputies responded to the scene, they found the shooter deceased outside the business and both deputy sheriffs deceased.

    "At this point, it remains an active criminal investigation with no apparent motive or indications as to why this tragedy occurred," the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a press release. "Sheriff Bobby Schultz has been on scene throughout the afternoon with his deputies and their families, notifying additional loved ones."

    A press conference is expected at 7 p.m.

    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.

    Ace China restaurant is located on East Wade Street in Trenton, Florida, just off SR-26. Trenton is approximately two hours north of Tampa Bay.

    The last White House declared war on LE. 8 years of propaganda has had a devastating effect.

    Remain ever villigent. Sad, but it's the world we live in.
