A gunman shot through the window of a Chinese restaurant and killed two Gilchrist County sheriff's deputies in Trenton, Fla., on Thursday.

Ramirez, who leaves behind a wife and two young children, worked in law enforcement for seven years, serving at the Williston Police Department and the Levy County Sheriff's Office before joining GCSO in 2016, according to GCSO.

Sgt. Noel Ramirez and deputy Taylor Lindsey died from gunshot wounds after the suspect shot them while eating lunch through the restaurant window at approximately 3 p.m., according to law enforcement.

Deputies from the neighboring Alachua County Sheriff's Office are answering calls for service in Gilchrist County to allow the local office time for healing.

Gilchrist County Sheriff Bobby Schultz will spend the rest of Friday with his family, officials said.

Jamie Mauldin, a waitress at Akins Bar-B-Q about a mile from Highnote's house in Bell said the town is devastated by the loss of the two deputies.

"I want this to be about those deputy sheriffs, I think that you can respect that", Schultz said at a media gathering late Thursday afternoon.

The slain deputies were Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey. "It's inexplicable", State Attorney Bill Cervone said of the suspect. "They just wanted to go get something to eat and they just wanted to do their jobs". "They were men of integrity, men of loyalty". 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.

The shooter was identified as a man from a small town just up the road from the restaurant, and his motive wasn't immediately known, but the sheriff blamed Thursday's killings on hatred toward law enforcement. "They understood when their loved ones pinned on the badge and they strapped on the gun that this was a possibility".

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