ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla. -

A St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputy was shot and killed this morning south of Fort Pierce, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office.

One suspect is in custody, according to St. Lucie Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

Sgt. Gary Morales, 35, a 13-year agency veteran, was shot and killed at 9:28 a.m in the 3200 block of Naylor Terrace, Mascara said.

At 9:28 a.m., deputies made a traffic stop just south of Edwards Road, south of Fort Pierce in unincorporated St. Lucie County.

At some point during the traffic stop, a suspect got out of his vehicle and shot Sgt. Morales who was in his patrol car, deputies said.

Sgt. Morales was transported to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center and Heart Institute where he was pronounced dead.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family," Sheriff Mascara said in a release.

A suspect is in custody and is being questioned at this time.

The area of the 3200 block of Oleander Avenue will be closed to traffic for the next few hours at least while the investigation continues.

Morales was promoted to Sergeant Jan. 18, 2013.

This was the second police officer in less than 24 hours who was shot. A Port St. Lucie officer was shot Wednesday night while responding to a domestic violence call
