A fugitive accused of the attempted murder of police officers gunned down a U.S. Marshals deputy commander trying to arrest him at a Georgia mobile home park Friday, officials said.

Dontrell Carter shot Deputy Commander Patrick Carothers, 53, twice around 9 a.m. when Carothers and other members of his team entered the trailer where they found Carter at the Ludowici mobile home park, according to the U.S. Marshal Service. Carothers’ team shot and killed Carter when they returned his fire, investigators said.
