A Washington County (Mo.) Sheriff's deputy was fatally shot after responding to a 911 call to help EMS personnel with an intoxicated woman during a medical call.

Deputy Christopher Parsons, 31, was shot by the son of the woman, as paramedics loaded her into an ambulance at about 2 a.m. Saturday in Mineral Point. After shooting the deputy, Gary Sancegrow, 30, ran into the woods.

Law enforcement personnel then launched a massive manhunt for Sancegrow, who turned himself in at a checkpoint at about 5 p.m. Saturday. Sancegrow has been charged with first-degree murder, reports the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Deputy Parsons was hired by the sheriff's office in October.

Oh, my God! This is like the Badwin County (AL) deputy was ambushed on Thanksgiving during a "welfare check". I am praying for Deputy Parson's family and friends, and for the safety of all our leo's. May God keep everyone safe! <3

R.I.P. Deputy Parsons. I hope this asshole gets the death penalty, but before that suffers greatly. You should've just offed yourself and left the deputy alone. He was there to help your mother, you p.o.s.!!!
