In an emotional address, the Harford County sheriff identified two deputies who were fatally shot in the line of duty, marking the first such tragedy in the small suburban county since 1899.
Sheriff Jeremy Gahler identified the men Thursday as Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey, a 30-year veteran of the department who served in the Marines and as a volunteer firefighter and Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon, a 16-year department veteran who served in the Army.
When Dailey arrived, he tried to engage with Evans, who was seated alone and had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.
Evans immediately took out a gun, shot Dailey in the head and fled out the restaurant's back door.
Evans was known to employees at the restaurant, Gahler said, and had warrants for his arrest in Orange County, Florida, for resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer, and another from Harford County stemming from unpaid attorney's fees.
The officer filed a request for a warrant on charges of fleeing and eluding officers, reckless driving and resisting an officer without violence.
The sheriff said Evans shot the deputies because he didn't want to go to jail, but didn't specifically target them because they were law enforcement.

Picabo Street had an illustrious skiing career highlighted by a gold medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics in the women's super-G event.
