Escambia County, FL – An Escambia County sheriff’s deputy was shot while responding to a call about a suicidal person on Wednesday afternoon.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a person threatening to commit suicide at about 1:37 p.m. on Dec. 11 in the 400-block of Limerick Drive, according to a post on the sheriff’s department’s official Facebook page.

The suspect opened fire on deputies when they arrived on the scene, and the deputies returned fire.

One of the responding deputies suffered bullet wounds during the gunfight, according to the sheriff’s department.

The suspect and the deputy were both transported to a local hospital for treatment.

This was the third Escambia County deputy to be shot this week, WKRG reported.

Officers shouldn’t even respond to these calls, they aren’t specialized in suicide prevention. Those type of people need mental help, not officers, let the. Kill themselves waisted breathe.

"911, please state your emergency"... "He got a gun!" "He gonna kill himself!" "Okay, well suicide isn't a crime, so call a shrink or make sure you are next of kin"

Smells like a setup. Call, get the LEO's there and claim it's a suicide attempt. There's been way too many calls like this.
