Despite heroic efforts from the medical staff at UF Health in Jacksonville, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper has reported that 29 year-old Deputy Josh Moyers, who was shot twice during a traffic stop in Callahan yesterday, will not be able to survive his injuries.  Leeper reported that the Deputy is being kept alive so that matches for his donated organs can be found, at the family’s request.

Leeper thanked the Nassau County Community for their “outpouring of support.”

The alleged shooter remains at large.
