Deputy in Washington dies after being shot by burglary suspects

Pierce County Sheriff's Deputy Daniel Alexander McCartney was shot and killed during a foot chase late Sunday as he responded to a home invasion in the Frederickson area, about 45 miles south of Seattle.

One suspect was found dead at the scene but the other escaped, prompting a manhunt that lasted into Monday morning.

McCartney worked for the Hoquiam Police Department for six years and was recruited there as an entry-level officer. He was transported to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma where he died.

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.

Police say the suspect is described as a tall, thin, mixed race or white male, with a large pointy nose, curly dark hair in a ponytail, and pock marks on the right side of his face.

All roads around the area reopened around 6:40 a.m., except for 200th Street East which will remain closed from 42nd Avenue to 50th Avenue while police continue their investigation.

Drivers were asked to avoid the area and residents were asked to stay inside their homes.

There are road closures as a result, and the Bethel School District has now made a decision to close its schools today. His bravery is is echoed across Washington every day, as our law enforcement officers run towards the danger in service of making Washington a safer place.

McCartney was married and had three young sons, according to KOMO-TV. "Our hearts are breaking with all of you during this time".
