A police officer was shot and killed in response to a report of home intrusion in an area about 23 kilometers away from Tacoma in Washington state on the US west coast, the state's Pierce County Sheriff's Department (PCSD) said Monday.

During the 911 call, dispatchers said they could hear screaming and the sounds of a scuffle.

McCartney was rushed to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tacoma where he died. Gunfire broke out about three minutes into the chase leaving McCartney only hours to live, one suspect dead lying next to a handgun and one suspect on the run.
