Sad news in Clare County after a mounted deputy has died after sustaining a serious head injury earlier this week in Clare County .
Deputy Nichole Shuff was responding to a medical call Monday night when she was thrown from her horse.
According to a post on Facebook from the MPD Mounted Patrol Foundation, they say "Shuff was not only a community helper as a Deputy but a Physician Assistant. She was know for her kindness, compassion, and love of horses. Two of our own officers were very lucky to have known her and trained with her just a few short months ago. Our thoughts are with her husband, family, friends, co-workers, and department."
