Pierce County Sheriff’s Department this morning announced in a tweet: “In great sadness we report that Deputy Cooper Dyson was killed in a collision while on duty, as he rushed to aide [sic] fellow deputies who were being assaulted by a domestic violence suspect.”
Trooper Dyson, 25, was the first to respond. However, while his car was heading west on 112th Street, Parkland, “at a high rate of speed,” it left the road. The car then rolled multiple times and struck a commercial building in the 1300 block.
Deputies responded to a 911 call from a passerby but found Deputy Dyson dead, according to Sgt. Ed Troyer, the Department’s spokesman.
Deputy Dyson had served with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department for two years. He is survived by his expectant wife and 2-year-old child.
