Sheriff's Deputy Shot Dead, Wife Goes Into Labor

KNOXBORO, N.Y. - A sheriff's deputy in upstate New York died overnight Tuesday after being shot at the end of a six-hour standoff, and his wife went into labor with their second child upon hearing the news, local media reported.

Deputy Kurt Wyman, 24, died after being rushed to a Utica hospital following the shootout around 2 a.m. Tuesday inside a garage in the rural hamlet of Knoxboro, Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol said eight hours after the incident.

Sheriff's spokesman Lt. James McCarthy told the Observer-Dispatch the couple has one child together, and that the deputy's wife, named in the report as Lauren, went into labor with the couple's second child upon hearing her husband had been shot.

WKTV reported that members of Wyman's church received a text message Tuesday morning with the news of Wyman's death and his wife's labor.

The station said family and many law enforcement members had gathered at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, the hospital where Wyman died in surgery, the Dispatch reported, citing McCarthy.

Maciol said Wyman joined the sheriff's department in October 2007 and spent a year deployed in Iraq with a Marine Corps Reserve unit before returning to the police agency in 2009. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM MSNBC
