TRENTON, Fla. — Authorities say someone fired through the window of a restaurant and fatally shot two Florida deputies.

An Alachua County sheriff's office news release states the Gilchrist County sheriff's deputies were killed Thursday afternoon in Trenton.

The release states the deputies were at the Ace China restaurant when the shooter walked up to the building and fired at them through a window. Fellow deputies responding to the scene found the shooter dead outside the business.

The release doesn't say how the suspect died. Authorities say there's no apparent motive for the shooting.

The names of the deputies and shooter weren't immediately released.

Trenton is in northern Florida, about 35 miles west of Gainesville.
