    Authorities: 2 deputies shot, conditions unknown
    The Associated Press

    CRESTVIEW, Fla. -- Authorities say two Okaloosa County sheriff's deputies have been shot and were airlifted to a hospital, but their conditions were not immediately known.

    The shooting occurred around 1 p.m. Saturday, when the two deputies went to Shoal River Sporting Clays and Shooting Center, near Crestview, in response to a call, said Michele Nicholson, a sheriff's spokeswoman.

    Authorities say the suspect shot and hit both deputies and took off toward neighboring Walton County, where he was shot and killed by sheriff's deputies.

    "Our deputies pursued him into Walton County shots were exchanged and he was killed," Nicholson said.

    A man who answered the telephone at the shooting center said he had no comment on the shooting.

    Nicholson said the injured deputes were airlifted to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola because Okaloosa County does not have trauma center.

    "It was serious because they had to be airlifted," she said.

    An Okaloosa County Sheriff's deputy was shot and killed in August following a standoff with a man who had barricaded himself inside a home.
    Ongoing at the moment.

    Somebody killed a policeman today,
    and a part of America died.
    A piece of our country he swore to protect,
    will be buried with him at his side.
    The beat that he walked was a battle field too,
    just as if he'd gone off to war.
    Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
    in your town or mine.
    While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
    a cop put his life on the line.
    Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
    and he stands at each new rookie's side.
    He answered the call, of himself gave his all,
    and a part of America died."

    -Author unknown
    Thoughts and prayers for their families and for their brothers and sisters in their law enforcement family.

    Heart felt condolences to the fallen officers families.

    Glad to see there will be no long drawn out trial and time behind bars before justice is served.

    2 Fla. sheriff's deputies fatally shot

    CRESTVIEW, Fla. (AP) — Two north Florida sheriff's deputies were fatally shot at a shooting range by a suspect who was later killed by deputies after he fled across the county line, authorities said.

    It happened around 1 p.m. Saturday when the two Okaloosa County deputies went to Shoal River Sporting Clays and Shooting Center in response to a call, said Michele Nicholson, a sheriff's spokeswoman.

    Deputies Burt Lopez and Deputy Warren "Skip" York were pronounced dead after being airlifted to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, about 45 miles away, the sheriff's office said. Sheriff's officials identified their killer as Joshua Cartwright, 28, of Fort Walton Beach.

    Authorities said the suspect shot both deputies and took off toward neighboring Walton County, where he was shot and killed by sheriff's deputies.

    A witness, Mark Illich was near the DeFuniak Springs intersection where deputies killed Cartwright.

    "It must have been like 30 or 40 shots," Illich told The Northwest Florida Daily News.

    Illich said he saw one officer putting down spikes at the intersection and knew "something's about to happen."

    Then, "(Cartwright's) truck, he started coming. And we saw him, and he seemed calm as a cucumber," Illich said.

    Cartwright veered around the spike strip, and an officer opened fire at the back of his truck, Illich said.

    The deputies had gone to the shooting range while following up on a domestic violence call from Cartwright's apartment in Fort Walton Beach, authorities said. Investigators from the Florida Department of Law enforcement and the sheriff's office did not immediately release other details about the call.

    A man who answered the telephone at the shooting center near Crestview said he had no comment on the shooting.

    Another Okaloosa County sheriff's deputy was shot and killed in July following a standoff with a man who had barricaded himself inside a home.

    Okaloosa County Sheriff Charles Morris was suspended by Gov. Charlie Crist in February after he was arrested by FBI agents while on a gambling trip to Las Vegas.

    Morris and his former office manager were indicted by a federal grand jury on Thursday on theft, money laundering and conspiracy charges. Prosecutors allege Morris and his former office manager, Teresa Adams, created fictitious bonuses for sheriff's department employees then pocketed some of the money.
