Police identify gunman, Florida deputy killed in shootout
The Tallahassee Democrat via USA Today
Tallahassee Police Officer Scott Angulo hugged residents along Caracus Court on Sunday, sobbing as he stopped to talk in the driveway of a fire-gutted home. A day earlier, a man set the home ablaze to lure first responders to the street so he could gun them down in an ambush that killed Leon County Sheriff's Deputy Christopher L. Smith. "These first responders performed their duty bravely, with courage and with honor," said Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. James McQuaig, surrounded by more than 20 officials from a dozen agencies that helped work the scene. "They are the reason that this casualty count is not higher than what it is."
