Suspect in deputy’s murder was wearing body armor, shot himself in the head during gun battle
TACOMA, Wash. - The suspect who died during a gun battle with a Pierce County sheriff's deputy earlier this week was wearing body armor and shot himself in the head, officials said Wednesday. Sheriff's deputy Daniel McCartney, 34, of Yelm, was fatally shot Sunday night while he was investigating a home invasion in Frederickson. One suspect, Henry Carden, was killed at the scene. The other suspect, Frank Pawul, allegedly fled and a manhunt was launched before he was apprehended on felony warrants and eventually booked on suspicion of first-degree murder.
