Deputy shot, dies trying to catch suspect

Washington state deputy shot and killed confronting burglars at home

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department said Monday that authorities are looking for a mixed race or white man who is tall and thin, with curly dark hair in a ponytail.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department identified the deputy as Daniel McCartney, 34.

A Pierce County Sheriff's deputy who was fatally shot late Sunday while responding to a home invasion in the Frederickson area near Graham had lived in Yelm, and had previously worked for the Hoquiam Police Department. He was a U.S. Navy veteran and a married father of three sons.

Police say two suspects were involved.

"Deputy Daniel A. McCartney was serving and protecting his community, responding to a burglary call when the suspects reportedly opened fire and murdered him".

One suspected burglar was found dead near the home about 1:30 a.m. He was transported to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma where he died.

The department asked in a Facebook posting that the deputy's family, friends, and the department be kept in people's thoughts and prayers.

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

Authorities have launched a manhunt for the other suspect and blocked off several roads in the suburb. That road and others - 176th Street East, 38th Avenue East and Canyon Road East - were closed to form a perimeter for the search.

He's described as having a large pointy nose and pock marks on right side of face, and was seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and black beanie. Some clothing was found by deputies that they believe he left behind.

Due to the manhunt and ongoing police investigation, the Bethel School District has canceled school on Monday.
