The Pierce County Sheriff's Department tweeted Monday that the suspect in the shooting of a Pierce County Sheriff's deputy early Monday morning has been arrested. 

Detectives from the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department have identified a 32 year old male suspect as being responsible for the murder of Deputy Daniel McCartney. The suspect is in custody for unrelated warrants and detectives are in the process of upgrading his booking charges to Murder in the 1st degree.
