Ingraham: Will Dems 'Eat Crow' After Report on Gang Members Released in Sanctuary Cities?

Gilchrist County Sheriff Bobby Schultz called the increased attacks on police officers across the country "appalling" after two of his deputies were fatally shot last week.

Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Deputy Sheriff Taylor Lindsey were ambushed at a restaurant in Trenton, Florida on Thursday.

"It's appalling when you have men and women [who] put their lives on the line for all of us, that want to try to do good," he said.

Schultz said on "Fox & Friends" that Ramirez and Lindsey were on their lunch break when they were gunned down.

"Unfortunately, we have those individuals and groups that want to demonize law enforcement for no other reason [than] because they can," he said.

Schultz said his department's investigation reported the assailant, John Hubert Highnote, entered the restaurant and the shooting occurred inside.

Officials had previously said the deputies were shot through a window.

According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, 22 officers have been killed in the line of duty by gunfire so far this year.
