    16 year old try to rob homeland security Assistant Chief

    We are not even safe trying to come home.

    Daniel Deion Sanchez and another gunman walked up to the garage of homeland security Assistant Chief Carson Tranquille as he and his wife arrived at their Northside home just before midnight, police said. The robbers were masked had their guns drawn.

    Tranquille and his wife were going into the house when the robbers approached, according to a police report.

    Tranquille fired his weapon, wounding one of the robbers, who was caught a few houses away and identified as Sanchez, said Chief Rick Graham of the Sheriff's Office.

    Sanchez was shot in the leg and was taken to Shands Jacksonville with non-life-threatening injuries, Graham said.

    The second robber escaped. Graham said police were looking for the other suspect and possibly a third person.

    He said Tranquille, a 20-year veteran of the department, first became suspicious as he passed through his neighborhood and noticed a car with its headlights on.

    The couple pulled into their garage and were preparing to go inside when the assailants walked up the driveway.

    “This was before the garage door was able to come down,” Graham said. Graham said the case is "really about a homeowner and his wife," though it shows police can also become victims of random crime.

    "We're not immune to it," he said.

    Graham said Tranquille was not in uniform and that the attempted robbery appears to be a random act.

    He said the two suspects did not fire their weapons and that a gun was recovered.

    “When the garage door went up and the light came on, that became a crime of opportunity,” Graham said.

    He said Sanchez has spoken with police.

    A person who answered the door at the Prospect Creek Drive address listed on Sanchez' arrest report declined to discuss the case.

    Sounds like somebody needs more time at the range and less time behind a desk,hitting the guy in the leg was lucky and he's probably luckier they didn't shoot back

    Probably right, but I'd cut the guy some slack. He confronted and ended the threat, defended himself and his family. There's a BG on jail. All with adrenalin pumping at a mile a minute, not at a range under nice safe controlled conditions.

    Will any of us do better under the same circumstances? Personally, I hope to never find out.

    I say kudos on what he did do, not what he didn't.

    Not trying to sound cocky, but I've been in much more stressful situations. The BGs I confornted didn't talk, they just let the rounds fly. I wasn't downing the guy.. that's just what happens when you are not out in the field.

    I agree with you.

    Perfect outcome, no. Are we in a perfect world, no.

    Acceptable outcome in the real world, yes (IMHO).

    DHS has not been an agency in existence twenty years.
    And what "uniform", he would go to work at his capacity wearing a suit.

    This report is poorly written.

    Agreed.
    Apparantly he is the Asst. Chief of the Homeland Security Section of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Department.

    I agree, and I was wondering if anyone else would pick up on the errors.

    Way to pay attention. Have been hearing a lot about these types of crimes in our area lately. Some have noticed they're being followed home, while others are clueless and don't find out until they're approached in the garage. We live on a court, which makes it very obvious when a car that's not normally around drives through. Always good to stay alert.

    Anyone living in Jacksonville happen to notice the FTUs want to dramatize guns used in stories involving shootings by putting photos front page on the article? They did the same thing with the kid that took the AK to his girlfriend and her dad, why did they print the court paper that said it was to be confiscated. Our newspaper is becoming quite a rag, I guess i'll start looking for it in the checkout line next to the one with the fishboy article on the cover
