Deputy Slain on 2nd Day Back from Afghan Deployment

Deputy Slain on 2nd Day Back from Afghan Deployment

Associated Press

April 27, 2010

UPDATE: The Nye County sheriff’s office says a deputy killed in a shootout with a man wielding an assault rifle in a rural Nevada casino parking lot was 27-year-old Ian Deutch (DOY’tch).

Sheriff Tony DeMeo says the gunman was killed by another deputy in Monday’s shooting about 60 miles west of Las Vegas. The gunman hasn’t been identified.

Deutch was in his second day back at his police job after returning from military duty last month with the Nevada Army National Guard in Afghanistan.

Sheriff’s deputies were responding to a 911 call from a woman who fled to Terrible’s Lakeside Casino & RV Park after a domestic argument and gunfire at a home nearby.

DeMeo says the gunman opened fire with an assault rifle as deputies arrived.

PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) — A deputy sheriff who was shot Monday while responding to a domestic disturbance report about 60 miles west of Las Vegas has died.

The Nye County Sheriff’s Office says when deputies arrived at Terrible’s Lakeside RV Resort in Pahrump, the suspect pulled a rifle out of his vehicle and opened fire without warning. The officers returned fire and killed the suspect.

The sheriff’s office says one of the deputies was shot several times and was taken to a Las Vegas hospital, where he underwent surgery but died.

His name and that of the suspect were not released.

Nye County Sheriff Anthony DeMeo told KLAS-TV that the deputy was 27 years old, had recently returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan and it was his second day back.

    RIP Brave soul. You fought on foreign shores only to die unnecessarily in your own country. My prayers I give to you and your extended family. May God grant you His Peace on your final tour of duty in Heaven.

    Italian Policeman's prayer
    (Preghiera del poliziotto)
    dedicata a San Michele Arcangelo
    RIP Brother.

    S. Michele Arcangelo nostro celeste Patrono,
    che hai vinto gli spiriti ribelli
    – nemici della verità e della Giustizia –
    rendi forti e generosi, nella reverenza e
    nell’adesione alla legge del Signore,
    quanti la Patria ha chiamato
    ad assicurare tra i suoi cittadini
    concordia, onestà e pace affinché
    – nel rispetto di ogni legge –
    sia alimentato lo spirito
    di umana fraternità.
    Per questo, imploriamo dal tuo patrocinio
    rettitudine alle nostre menti,
    vigore ai nostri voleri, onestà ai nostri
    affetti per la serenità delle nostre case
    e per la dignità della nostra terra.
    Amen.

    What a complete tragedy. Say a prayer for this man, his family and agency. This should not happen to him or anyone else but under these circumstances it is compunded that he gave up his freedoms and liberties to protect us all in a faraway land only to return to his own murder at the hands of those he protected.
