MIDDLEBURG, Fla. -- State law enforcement investigators are combing a home that housed a meth lab where a Clay County detective was fatally shot and another officer wounded.

Detective David White was a nine year veteran with the department, leaving behind a wife and two young children.

Detective Matt Hanlin is recovering from his gunshot wound.

On Friday, Florida Department of Law Enforcement teams in white protective suits spent hours in the 16 year-old home located at 4874 Alligator Boulevard located south of Middleburg.

Ray Sutton who lives a block away heard the gunfire Thursday night.

"I could not tell how many shots and there were sheriff's officers all over in just a minute just everywhere" said Sutton who has lived in the area 22 years.

Sutton says he thought the home had been abandoned, but noted people were staying there with a lot of traffic in and out.

Carla Willis has lived in the community since 1977 and did not hear gunshots from her home that is two blocks away on Bull Creek Road.

"It is horrible," said Willis when seeing investigators in protective clothing working the crime scene.

Investigators on the scene said they hoped to finish up their work on Friday.  Calls made to the FDLE office in Tallahassee for additional comment on the investigation have not been returned.
