Pierce County Deputy killed in line of duty

Suspect apprehended in killing of Wash. deputy

McCartney, 34, of Yelm was shot while responding to a burglary call in the Fredrickson area. Trudi and I are saddened and praying for the deputy's young family as they grieve the loss of their husband and father.

McCartney was a husband and has three sons. He began to pursue a suspect on foot and shots were fired at the deputy, striking him.

In a statement earlier from the Governor's office, Jay Inslee asked all Washingtonians to hold Deputy McCartney's Family in our hearts as well as all the men and women in Pierce County Sheriff's Department who served with McCartney and all who serve in law enforcement across our state.

"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. One suspect was found dead at the scene and another is on the loose and being sought by authorities. Police believe that handgun was used to shoot McCartney. The second assailant escaped and remains at large.

"He was one of the people in our agency who stepped up and stepped forward", said Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor, according to KOMO.

They say it appears the suspect may have partially disrobed as he fled.

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

A memorial fund was set up to benefit his wife and children. Donations can be made any any TAPCO Credit Union branch or via Paypal.
