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.

    Rest in Peace, Brother. Another real American hero, taken long before his time, in service to his fellow man. He will go mostly unoticed by the general population who are enthralled by people like politicians, movie actors and celebrities who are not worthy to even carry water for a man such as Deputy Ian Deutch.
