Deputy shot during chase dies from gunshot wounds

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

The deputy was shot while running after the suspects within 10 minutes of responding to that call for help.

According to the Pierce County Sheriff's Department, the deputy was shot just after 11:30 p.m. Sunday while responding to a 911 call for an intruder reported in a house on 200th Street East in the Frederickson area.

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

Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says the search continues in the Spanaway and Fredrickson areas of Pierce County as officers and K-9 units look for a suspect described only as a black male.

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. Police believe that handgun was used to shoot McCartney.

Authorities have launched a manhunt for the other suspect, and blocked off several roads in the suburb. The second assailant escaped and remains at large.

The deputy suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma.
