  • The processional for fallen Pierce County Sheriff's Deputy Daniel A. Mc Cartney begins

A male suspect was found dead at the scene. Trudi and I are saddened and praying for the deputy's young family as they grieve the loss of their husband and father.

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

The Pierce County Sheriff Department provided this photo of Daniel McCartney, the deputy who died after being shot by a suspected burglar in the Frederickson area. The Tacoma News-Tribune reported that he was hired in 2014, was married and had three sons. During the ensuing chase, police believe at least one of the suspects fired shots.

He served with Pierce County for some three years.

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. An active manhunt is under way for his suspected shooter.
