Carson City —
Officials say a Nevada sheriff's deputy is dead after a suspect opened fire on officers responding to a domestic violence call.
Authorities say the suspect was later found dead at the scene of the confrontation, which happened a little after 2 a.m. Saturday in east Carson City.
Sheriff's officials say deputies were responding to reports of domestic battery and reported an injured woman at the scene. Deputies say the male suspect came out of the house within minutes and fatally shot one of the Carson City sheriff's deputies.
Additional officers responded and evacuated three children from the house. They ranged in age from 8 to 13.
The Reno Police Department has taken over the investigation.
Details about the officer and the suspect were not immediately released.
