A statewide manhunt is underway for an Iraq war veteran who's suspected of killing a sheriff's deputy.

Officials say Deputy Adam Klutz was shot shot while responding to a 911 hang up call in Caldwell County Saturday.

The officer with him was also shot, but his bullet proof vest protected him.

Authorities believe 32-year-old Army veteran Skip Brinkley could be responsible for the attack.
