Pray for Families of Fallen Deputies

Tragedy for the law enforcement community today. Two St. John the Baptist Parish deputies were shot and killed and two others were wounded in a shootout with some suspects.

Sheriff Mike Tregre called the incident an “ambush.”  It happened while one deputy was working security at the Valero St. Charles Refinery.  One deputy was shot and wounded in a nearby parking lot and other officers tracked the shooter’s car to a nearby mobile home park. They got one man in custody outside, but when others went to knock on the door of the mobile home, someone came out with an assault weapon and opened fire. Two deputies were killed. Two suspects were wounded before they were taken into custody.

34-year-old Brandon Nielsen, a two-year veteran and 27-year-old Jeremy Triche, a four-year veteran died in the attack. Two other deputies were wounded. Nielson is survived by his wife and five children, and Jeremy Triche by his wife and 2-year-old son.

Five people are now in jail in connection with the shootings. 

Gov. Bobby Jindal has ordered the state flags flown at half-staff over the state Capitol and all public buildings and institutions until sunset Friday in honor of the fallen deputies.
