The suspect was transported to a local hospital by ambulance, where he was pronounced deceased. The identity of the suspect will not be released, pending next of kin notification. No deputies were injured during this incident and there are no outstanding suspects.
The involved deputy will be placed on paid administrative leave according to Department policy and will not be named at this time.
