Pierce County Deputy killed in line of duty

Suspect apprehended in killing of Wash. deputy

The Pierce County Sheriff's Office had not released the deputy's name early Monday. He began to pursue a suspect on foot and shots were fired at the deputy, striking him.

"This is sad for the entire community, this is a loss to the entire community", Sheriff Paul Pastor said.

"Today we lost a hero, son, father, husband, veteran and police officer".

Pierce County sheriff's deputy Daniel McCartney was shot and killed while responding to a home invasion Monday. He was transported to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma where he died. He leaves behind a wife and three young boys, who are four, six, and nine years old.

"It is with incredible sadness that [we] inform you that our deputy has passed away from his injuries", the sheriff's office posted on Twitter.

Daniel McCartney, 34, was chasing the suspect when shots were exchanged, fatally wounding the officer, authorities said.




When other law enforcement officers arrived, they found one of the suspects dead of a gunshot wound.

A police spokesman said the police authorities believed there was a gunbattle between McCartney and the home intruders during the fatal encounter.

The suspect in the shooting remained at large, KIRO-TV reported.

School District cancelled school Monday due to an "abundance of caution", and the police investigation blocking access to the bus facility according to the Bethel School District Facebook Page.

Deputies are doing a K-9 track in the area and have closed Canyon Road at 176th Street South all the way to the end of the road. Donations can be made any any TAPCO Credit Union branch or via Paypal.
