Two suspects were involved, one of whom was also shot and died at the scene, the sheriff's office said.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Office deputy came under fire while chasing down the suspects after a 911 call warned of an intruder around 11:30 p.m. local time near Spanaway, about 12 miles south of Tacoma, according to a report.

When deputies arrived, a suspect fled and one of the deputies pursued him.

The deputy was taken to a hospital in Tacoma where he died. He was the father of three boys.

"It is with incredible sadness that [we] inform you that our deputy has passed away from his injuries", the sheriff's office posted on Twitter.

Sources also said that former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh had also seen the statements before they were made in the house. In his notice, Yadav said the Congress president twisted the spelling of Jaitley's surname to " Jaitlie " which was demeaning.

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.

The suspect in the shooting remained at large, KIRO-TV reported. Police also found some pieces of clothing the suspect may have shed.

"We don't know if the suspect on the loose has been shot or what he's armed with", said Pierce County Sheriff's Department spokesman Ed Troyer, according to KIRO.

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

He served with Pierce County for some three years.
