A sheriff's deputy in Nevada was shot and killed early Saturday while officers were responding to a domestic violence call at a home in Carson City.

Deputy Carl Howell, 35, approached the home and found an injured woman. He then confronted Jonathon Pope, 30, and gunfire was exchanged, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.

Pope also died at the scene but authorities didn't say how he died. Three children at the residence, the youngest 8 and the oldest 13, were safely evacuated.

"When deputies arrived on scene, one deputy went to make contact with the male subject, shots were fired between the deputy and the male subject," Reno Police Officer Tim Broadway told KRNV-TV. The Reno Police Department is leading the investigation into the shooting.

"Right now it is an active investigation and our hearts and prayers go out to the Carson City Sheriff's Office and to the family and friends of the nine-year veteran deputy who was killed this morning," said Broadway.

Howell was married and had four young children, said Michael Sean Giurlani, president of the Nevada State Law Enforcement Officers' Association.

"It's a ripple that's kind of hit all of us very, very hard," Giurlani.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said the last area officer to die in the line of duty was Ormsby County sheriff's deputy Daniel McDaniel who died in a vehicle accident in 1963. A Carson City sheriff's deputy had not been shot and killed on duty since 1867, said the Gazette-Journal.
