Pierce County Deputy killed in line of duty

Authorities in Washington state appealed to the public for help Monday in tracking down a man believed to have been involved in the fatal shooting of a sheriff's deputy overnight. It appears the Deputy was responding to a report of a residential burglary at the home when he was shot and killed.

Deputy Daniel McCartney, 34, had served the Pierce County Sheriff's Office since 2014.

One of two suspects was also killed during the exchange, according to the sheriff's department. An active manhunt is under way for his suspected shooter. A male suspect was found dead at the scene.

They say it appears the suspect may have partially disrobed as he fled. He was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a black beanie.

According to the Pierce County Sheriff's Department, the deputy was shot just after 11:30 p.m. Sunday while responding to a 911 call for an intruder reported in a house on 200th Street East in the Frederickson area.

It was not immediately known who shot one of the suspects, or whether the deputy managed to return fire.

All schools in the Bethel School District, have been closed for the day as a precaution.

The injured deputy was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

A memorial fund was set up to benefit his wife and children.
