Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office Sergeant Noel Ramirez (left) and Deputy Taylor Lindsey (right) were murdered Thursday.

Trenton, FL - Sergeant Noel Ramirez, 30, and Deputy Taylor Lindsey, 25, of the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office were murdered while they ate in a restaurant on Thursday.

Gilchrist Sheriff Bobby Schultz released a statement saying that the two deputies were eating inside of the Ace China restaurant in Trenton at around 3:00 p.m.

A gunman approached the building and opened fire on the two deputies through a window in an ambush attack.

The deputies died on scene.

News4Jax reports that the suspect then walked back to his vehicle and fatally shot himself.

The sheriff's office says that the shooting was entirely unprovoked and the deputies were just assassinated on their break.

"They were men of integrity. They were God-fearing, and they loved what they did. They gave their lives so we can all be safe. They just wanted to get something to eat. They just wanted to do their jobs," Sheriff Schultz said.

Sergeant Ramirez leaves behind a wife and small children.
