Sacramento County Mourns Death of Deputy Adam Gibson
A six-year veteran of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department was killed in a shootout with a suspect last week. A K-9 also died and another deputy was wounded.
The deceased deputy, Adam Gibson, leaves behind a wife and baby.
“Deputy Gibson will forever be remembered for his selfless sacrifice and his commitment to providing safety and security for the Sacramento community,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a statement.
The suspect, who was also killed, has been identified as Robert Stephen Calderon. His mother told the Associated Press that her son suffered from drug abuse and mental illness.
