McCartney, a three year veteran of the sheriff's office and a Navy veteran, was shot Sunday evening while responding to a burglary in Frederickson, Washington. He suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma.

The department asked in a Facebook posting that the deputy's family, friends, and the department be kept in people's thoughts and prayers. "After we started talking to him, he was booked on felony warrants out of Shelton". "It's a terribly sad day for law enforcement everywhere".

It was about 11:25 p.m. when deputies were called to a home in the 5100 block of 200th Street East for a home invasion.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Office confirmed McCartney's death Monday morning.

There are road closures as a result, and the Bethel School District has now made a decision to close its schools today.
