A sheriff's deputy was shot and fatally wounded while responding to a report of a possible break-in and gunfire at a mobile home in western Ohio.

Deputy Matthew Yates was a 15-year veteran of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and a member of its special operations team, Sheriff Deb Burchett said at a press conference Sunday.

The responding officers were shot at after they entered the mobile home in Harmony Township, Burchett said.

Yates was wounded and remained inside the home for several hours Sunday before other officers could get him out and take him to a hospital, where he died, the sheriff said.
