David Adam White

Detective David White was shot and killed during a raid of a suspected drug house on the 4800 block of Alligator Boulevard, in Middleburg, 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.

Detective White was a military veteran and served with the Clay County Sheriff's Office for nine years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

White was right when he said , "Fight for your life with all your might" even at night with a bright lite, a bike or a kite. Dave loved his flags and parachutes! I didnt know Dave from ADAM when he found me.
