McCartney, 34, of Yelm was shot while responding to a burglary call in the Fredrickson area.

One suspect was found dead at the scene, but another got away, authorities said.

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

A Pierce County Sheriff Department deputy died early Monday morning after being shot by an apparent burglar he was trying to catch in the Frederickson area.

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. The Tacoma News-Tribune reported that he was hired in 2014, was married and had three sons. Police believe that handgun was used to shoot McCartney. An active manhunt is under way for his suspected shooter. The second assailant escaped and remains at large.

The suspect, who authorities described as armed and unsafe, was the subject of manhunt by K9 units in the area of 200th Sreet as the suspect is being actively searched for by K9 units. He was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a black beanie.

The sheriff's office asked anyone with information about the shooting to come forward, and a nearby school district canceled classes in what it described as an abundance of caution.

The deputy was taken to a hospital in Tacoma where he died. The Pierce County Skills Center will also be closed.

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