NEW YORK POST:

Two sheriff’s deputies have been killed in Florida Thursday— gunned down in broad daylight — during a suspected ambush, according to authorities.

The cops were eating at a Chinese restaurant in the city of Trenton, about 35 miles west of Gainesville, when the shooter walked up and started blasting through a window, officials said in a statement.

The gunman shot both deputies dead and then took his own life. Officials said no one else was injured. The incident happened around 3 p.m.

The cops involved were identified Thursday night as Sergeant Noel Ramirez, 30, and Deputy Sheriff Taylor Lindsey, 25, of the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office.

The cops involved were deputies with the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office.

“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,” officials said.
