A Washingtonstate sheriff’s deputy was shot and killed in the line of duty Saturday night after responding to a report of a disabled vehicle blocking a roadway, officials said.

Deputy Justin DeRosier, 29, had arrived at the scene northeast of Kalama around 10 p.m., the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.

DeRosier was shot soon afterwards and received medical care. He died at a nearby hospital, officials said.

Other circumstances surrounding the shooting were unclear. The sheriff’s office announced it had found a “person of interest” in the shooting and was following leads.

“Deputy DeRosier made a huge impact in his short career and will forever live in our hearts and mind,” the sheriff’s office wrote.

A 2012 graduate of Washington State University and a deputy since 2016, DeRosier is survived by his wife and young daughter.
