PITTSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a Maryland deputy was shot and killed while trying to arrest a fugitive.

The Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office says Deputy First Class Glenn Hilliard spotted the suspect, who was wanted on multiple felony warrants, coming out of an apartment complex Sunday evening in Pittsville, Maryland. A foot chase ensued and Hilliard was shot trying to arrest the suspect. The sheriff’s office says the suspect was later captured after an extensive manhunt.

Hilliard was a 16-year veteran of law enforcement and would have turned 42 later this month.  Hilliard leaves behind a wife and three children.
