Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location:   LaPlace, LA   USA   Thu. Aug. 16, 2012
Summary: Deputy Sheriffs Brandon Nielsen and Jeremy Triche were shot and killed in LaPlace, Louisiana, by members of a domestic terrorist group known as the Sovereign Citizens. They were shot while investigating an earlier ambush shooting that wounded a sheriff's office investigator.

The investigator was working an off duty security detail at a remote parking lot used by a construction company for contract employees at about 5:00 am when someone opened fire on him as he sat in his department vehicle.

Responding units located a car they believed had been involved in the early shooting in a nearby trailer park. As deputies Triche and Nielsen, and a third deputy questioned two men outside of a mobile home, a third man suddenly exited the home and opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle, striking all three deputies. Deputies Nielsen and Triche both died as a result of their wounds. The third deputy, who was related to Deputy Triche, was seriously wounded.

Seven subjects were arrested and held in connection with both separate shooting incidents.
