David White - Law Enforcement - Florida

Detective David White, age 35, died in the line of duty on February 16, 2012, in Middleburg, Florida.

David was a member of the Clay County Sheriff's Office. He had 9 years of service. 

David was shot and killed during a raid of a suspected drug house at approximately 6:30 p.m. The home was occupied by six squatters who were using it as a meth lab. As Detective White and another detective approached the front door one of the occupants immediately opened fire, striking both of them. The subject then ran through the home and tried to flee through a back door, where he encountered another deputy who fatally shot him. The five other occupants of the home were taken into custody.

Jesus, pray for David
David served in the US Army as a combat MP in both Bosnia and Iraq. He was born in Jacksonville, Florida and grew up in Middleburg. He graduated from Middleburg High School in 1995.

He will be forever missed by all of his loved ones.
