Deputy shot in 2012 to get kidney from a stranger, another deputy
COVINGTON, LA (WGNO) — In 2012, Jason Triche was one of of four St. John deputies who were shot during an ambush and gun battle at a trailer park in LaPlace. Jason was one of two deputies who survived.
His recovery included a list of health issues. Now he needs a kidney transplant.
