Someone called the Sheriff's Office just before 11:30 a.m. saying an intruder was inside a home in Frederickson, a suburb just southeast of Tacoma.

The police said McCartney was shot while he was chasing a male suspect on foot during an emergency call response at a home where screaming was heard and a scuffle took place in Pierce County, the second most populous county in Washington.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department identified the deputy as Daniel McCartney, 34. Gunfire broke out about three minutes into the chase leaving McCartney only hours to live, one suspect dead lying next to a handgun and one suspect on the run.

Authorities launched a dragnet after a Washington state sheriff's deputy was shot and killed while chasing a pair of suspected burglars late Sunday, police said. He was transported to Saint Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma and passed away shortly after 2 a.m. One white male was found dead at the scene but police are actively looking for another black male suspect who is believed to be armed and unsafe.

McCartney joined the force in 2014 and leaves behind a wife and three sons, police said.

"Deputy Daniel A. McCartney was serving and protecting his community, responding to a burglary call when the suspects reportedly opened fire and murdered him".

One suspect was found dead at the scene but the other escaped, prompting a manhunt.

Deputies are doing a K-9 track in the area and have closed Canyon Road at 176th Street South all the way to the end of the road.

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