Suspect apprehended in fatal shooting of Wash. deputy

FREDERICKSON, Wash. (AP) -  Authorities in Washington state say they have apprehended a suspect in the fatal shooting of a sheriff's deputy.
 
Pierce County Sheriff's Department spokesman Ed Troyer says a 32-year-old man was arrested Monday on unrelated felony warrants in the Shelton area.
 
Troyer says detectives have since tied him to the shooting.
 
Deputy Daniel McCartney was fatally shot during a chase on foot late Sunday night as he responded to a home invasion in the Frederickson area, southeast of Tacoma.
 
A suspect in his mid-30s was found dead at the scene, but another suspect escaped, prompting a manhunt.
 
The suspects' names have not been released.
 
Troyer says the man is expected to appear in court Tuesday on a charge of first-degree murder.
