Deputy killed near Tacoma

A Pierce County deputy has died after being shot responding to a robbery call near Spanaway, the Sheriff's Department confirmed. During the ensuing chase, police believe at least one of the suspects fired shots. Trudi and I are saddened and praying for the deputy's young family as they grieve the loss of their husband and father. The injured deputy was transported in critical condition to Saint Joseph's Hospital in Tacoma where he later died.

The Pierce County Sheriff's deputy was identified as 34-year-old Daniel McCartney.

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

McCartney arrived on scene within six minutes and began to chase two suspects, Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said.

Deputies attempted to track the fugitive using K-9 deputies and closed 38th Avenue East to Canyon Road East and 76th Street East to 200th Street East through early Monday morning.

Authorities have launched a manhunt for the other suspect, and blocked off several roads in the suburb.

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

Pierce County Sheriff's Department set up tipline for any information about the fatal shooting of Deputy McCartney.

After-school activities also were canceled "in an abundance of caution", district officials announced.

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