UPDATE: Deputy Killed During Burglary Call Identified

Posted: Updated:
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Officials have identified a sheriff's deputy who was fatally shot while responding to a car burglary call in central Florida.
    
The Orange County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that Deputy Jonathan Scott Pine was fatally shot late Monday near Orlando while responding to a car burglary call.
    
Pine was married and had three small children. He had been with the sheriff's office since 2011.
    
The sheriff's office says the 34-year-old deputy saw a suspect sitting in a car with a woman late Monday. The suspect started to run and the deputy pursued him. That's when the man fired at the deputy, hitting him.
    
The suspect kept running and was found dead in a nearby neighborhood. Authorities say it doesn't appear the deputy fired at him, so they are trying to determine whether the suspect shot himself.
