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.

    What a sad loss. Having been to the battle and back I feel a great loss whenever one of our defenders returns unscathed only to meet their untimely end on the streets where we all feel particularly safe. R.I.P. brother.

    This is sad. I will pray for the deputies family. Thanks for serving our country. It takes all you can to focus on coming home while in combat, only to come home to the land of the free and get killed. I wonder were the true war is. Rip brother.

    May you see God's light on the path ahead
    When the road you walk is dark.
    May you always hear,
    Even in your hour of sorrow,
    The gentle singing of the lark.
    When times are hard may hardness
    Never turn your heart to stone,
    May you always remember
    when the shadows fall—
    You do not walk alone.
