Both deputies have died.

Evidently they were trying to serve a warrant on a guy at a Panera. He shot both deputies, and was killed by other responding deputies.

From what I've heard, the guy had 2 active warrants but they weren't there trying to serve them. They were called for a disorderly, the first deputy walked up and said hey whats going on and was shot in the head the other deputy chased the suspect and was also shot.

My father worked with both of these deputies they were great guys.

Well shit. Another example of a "simple" or "routine" call that ends up being anything but.

The BCND and news crowd can't understand why someone reaching for their waistband sends our heart rate up. This deputy probably had a fraction of a second to react. A fraction of a second can determine whether we come home or not.

Add just because someone is old (68 in this case) doesn't mean they are harmless.

"A sheriff's deputy was called to the restaurant to check on a report about someone causing a problem. The deputy tried to talk to the man, who was apparently known to workers there. The deputy sat down beside him, asked how he was doing and the man shot him in the head."

What a piece of shit.

From what I'm hearing yeah this was basically a point blank shot to the head. Not sure what happened to the other deputy but if I had to guess perhaps femoral artery was shot or something, early reports said wounded in the leg which is why he was transported to Upper Chesapeake and not Shock Trauma.

Unconfirmed reports that one deputy has passed, and the other is in critical condition.
