Leon County, Florida Sheriff’s Deputy Christopher Smith shot and killed by a man who set his own house on fire. The gunman identified as Curtis Wade Holley laid in wait as deputy Smith and another deputy arrived on scene. Holley then shot both deputies, killing Deputy Smith.

Holley was later shot and killed in a gun battle with police, including an off-duty officer who lived nearby and went to the aid of the deputies.

Authorities said Holley held “anti-government, anti-establishment” views and had previously threatened law enforcement.
