Officer down, Sumter CO Sheriff’s Dept SC

Corporal Andrew Gillette was shot and killed while he and other deputies attempted to serve a detention order and eviction notice at a home at 3120 Thomas Sumter Highway at 11:30 am today.

The subject named on the orders opened fire, striking Corporal Gillette in the chest. Other deputies who were on the scene returned fire and killed the subject.

Corporal Gillette was a U.S. Air Force veteran. He served with the Sumter County Sheriff's Office for seven years and was assigned to the Civil Process Division. He is survived by his wife and 11-year-old son.

Godspeed my brother, may you Rest In Peace.

So tragic. These guys are always at risk, no matter what they're doing. Killed for an eviction notice? Horrible and senseless.

The officer was wearing a bulletproof vest, according to news reports. Just goes to show they can't always save you.

RIP.

RIP Corporal Gillet, and prayers for your family.
Bad guy must have shot him with a rifle or some Black Tallon rounds. No such thing as low risk anything for Law Enforcement.
