This is a sad day for me and many of my friends in Charleston County, South Carolina. Prior to my retirement I proudly served 24 years with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Officer with the majority of my time in Uniform Patrol.
Today I received word that the agency lost two fine men to gunfire while working an off-duty job at an apartment complex. They were responding to a disturbance in one of the apartments and when at the door a deranged individual opened fire with a long gun, firing through the door killing one deputy and critically wounding another.
I am asking each and every one of you to show your support for the agency and families of the two brave men who gave their life serving and protecting the citizens of Charleston County. You can do this by going up on the agency Face book page.
I hope that all who read this will now take a moment to say a prayer for those men, their families, and the men and women of Charleston County Sheriff’s Office who will continue to serve even in the aftermath of such a horrible event.
God Bless You All,
John T: aka Joseph Jones, Master Deputy, CCSO(ret).
