MODESTO (CBS13) – Thursday night a community united in mourning.

They sat side-by-side silently at first for Deputy Robert Paris and locksmith Glendon Engert. Even those who didn’t know the victims, moved by the support, were brought to tears.

“The community, as well, has suffered,” said Sheriff Adam Christianson, Stanislaus Sheriff Department.

On April 12, people watched as the scene unfolded, and as news trickled in, those dead were Paris and Engert.

Those who knew them, and even those who didn’t, say they went numb.

“All of our deputies know when they take this job that this always has a possibility that something like this could happen, but the family of Glendon, you know, he didn’t sign up for this,” said Debra Allen, who worked with Paris.

But in tragedy there is also strength as strangers pull together to help each other heal.

“We’ll never forget Bob. We’ll never forget his sacrifice, but we still have to push forward,” said Christianson.
