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

They alerted deputies, and one arrived about six minutes later.

Authorities have identified a sheriff's deputy shot and killed while responding to a home invasion as a Navy veteran and father of three young boys.

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

McCartney was a husband and has three sons.

The department asked in a Facebook posting that the deputy's family, friends, and the department be kept in people's thoughts and prayers and that media avoid the area because of the ongoing search for the suspect. Police believe that handgun was used to shoot McCartney.




The suspect fled the area on foot and a massive manhunt is underway.

The suspect escaped and remained at-large Monday as The Dispatch went to press.

Deputies were doing a K-9 track in the area and closed 176th Street East to 200th Street East, and 38th Avenue East to Canyon Road East.

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.

After the shooting he was taken to a Tacoma hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A legacy fund has been set up at TAPCO Credit Union for the fallen deputy's family.
