It was found that two deputies had been killed by gunshot wounds at a rental home in Florida.
Police in St Augustine, Florida, have found the bodies of two deputies from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office who had been shot.
The deputies were in a relationship, and their bodies were found at a vacation rental home they were staying at with other officers, where they were staying when they were killed.
In the 5300 block of A1A South on Saturday, a man was shot and killed. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office sent out a press release about the incident the next day. This is how it works:
Statement: “We have learned that the deputies in this case were in a romantic relationship. Fellow deputies on vacation with them heard them fighting in a bedroom before the sound of gunshots.”
“The gunshot wound to Detective Daniel Leyden appears to be self-inflicted, and he was the only person who fired.”
The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office is looking into the shooting and trying to figure out a reason for it.
Sheriff Chad Chronister said that if officers feel overwhelmed, they should use the support services that they already have.
This is an unthinkable tragedy for our Sheriff’s Office family. We’re still in shock. “My prayers for strength and comfort go out to the families and loved ones of these deputies, and to everyone on the HCSO team who has been hurt by this loss.”
“Violence is never a solution, and I encourage any employee who is having a crisis to use the many resources that our agency has built up over the last few years to help.”
Peer Support, Chaplains, and a clinical psychologist are some of them. People can get help by calling.
Newsweek has asked the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office for a response.
This month, Newsweek talked about a possible self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head that killed a sheriff’s deputy in Texas.
In the early hours of Monday, January 17, Deputy Amanda Crowder and her boyfriend are said to have had an argument at a bar on Washington Avenue.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez says that Crowder, who was not on duty, may have shot himself.
His boyfriend, who is a firefighter, stopped at Houston Fire Department Station 6 on Washington Avenue after Crowder was shot. He was there to get help. Crowder was later taken to the hospital, but she died from her injuries.
I can’t believe it. Our deputy has died. Please keep her, her family, and our agency in your thoughts and prayers.
Later, he said that Crowder had been a peace officer with the Metro Police Department for almost three years. He said: “She will be missed, may she rest in peace.”
When Crowder died, the Houston Police Department is now looking into the cause of his death, too.
