Pierce County deputy was Navy veteran, father

The deputy was taken to Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Tacoma where he died from his injuries

Deputy McCartney was a Navy veteran and served the department for three years.

The deputy arrived on scene and became involved in a foot pursuit with a male suspect, during which shots were fired and the deputy was struck. He suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma.

One of two suspects was also killed during the exchange, according to the sheriff's department.

One suspect was found dead at the scene but the other escaped, prompting a manhunt. He leaves behind a wife and three young boys, who are four, six, and nine years old.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department said Monday that authorities are looking for a mixed race or white man who is tall and thin, with curly dark hair in a ponytail.




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.

The suspect, who authorities described as armed and risky, 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. One suspect was found dead at the scene and another is on the loose and being sought by authorities.

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. He was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a black beanie. Nearby, they discovered the fatally wounded deputy.

The Bethel School District canceled all classes Monday because of the ongoing manhunt, which included authorities blocking roads leading to the district's bus facility and preventing bus drivers from starting their t pickup routes.
