Bio: Deputy Smith began his law enforcement career as a Dispatcher with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in 1989. From 1991 through January 2009, Deputy Smith served as a Correctional Officer and then a Deputy Sheriff with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: FL   USA
Summary: Deputy Sheriff Christopher Smith was shot from ambush when he responded to reports of a house fire at the end of Caracus Court. Deputy Smith was among the first to arrive on scene at approximately 10:22 a.m. and was immediately shot and killed by the subject, who had approached him from behind.

The subject then took Deputy Smith's firearm and continued to fire at other responders, including members of the Tallahassee Fire Department and Tallahassee Police Department. One other sheriff's deputy was shot and wounded before the subject was shot and killed by an off-duty Tallahassee police officer who lived nearby and had responded to the sound of gunfire.

It is believed that the subject intentionally set the house fire with the intention to kill as many first responders as possible. The man was known to police but an officer-safety alert associated with his address was not activated because a neighbor's address was used as the location of the fire when it was dispatched.

Deputy Smith had previously served as a dispatcher and corrections officer. He served with the Leon County Sheriff's Office for almost six years and had served in law enforcement for almost 26 years. Deputy Smith is survived by his wife and children.

Disposition: Deputy Smith was layed to rst on Nov. 25th, 2014 at Oakfield Cemetery, Monticello, Fl.
