NORCROSS, Ga. -- Patrick Carothers, the slain U.S. marshal who was killed in the line of duty one week before Thanksgiving, was memorialized on Saturday as a beloved member of the nation’s law enforcement community.

“Deputy Commander Patrick Carothers was the kind of person we all hope our children would become,” said U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch. “He was a quiet man of action who committed himself to help those who could not help themselves. He represented the very best our nation has to offer.”

Officials said that a fugitive wanted for trying to kill police officers shot and killed Carothers during an arrest attempt near Ludowici, Ga.

LUDOWICI, Ga. – The hunt for a fugitive accused of shooting at police in South Carolina turned deadly when law officers tracked the suspect to southeast Georgia, where an attempt to arrest him erupted in gunfire.

The brief shootout at a mobile home in rural Long County killed a deputy U.S. marshal as well as the man his team was trying to apprehend.

The U.S. Marshals Service said Patrick Carothers, deputy commander of the agency's Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, died after being shot twice as the officers entered the mobile home.

"Pat is a hero," David Harlow, deputy director of the Marshals Service, said in a statement Friday offering condolences to Carothers' wife and five children. Carothers had served 26 years with the agency.

The slain suspect was identified as Dontrell Montese Carter, 25. He had been wanted in Sumter County, South Carolina, since Sept. 18 on charges of attempted murder of police officers, domestic violence and illegally discharging a weapon.

The GBI has arrested three people in the shooting death of a U.S. Marshal. Patrick Thomas Carothers was part of a team executing a search warrant for a fugitive out of South Carolina when when he was killed on November 18, 2016.

Dontrell Montese Carter was wanted for attempted murder of police officers, domestic violence, and unlawfully discharging a weapon during an incident in September 2016 in Sumter County, South Carolina. The Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force had tracked Carter to a residence in Allenhurst, Georgia located in Long County. At the residence where Carter was hiding, law enforcement also made contact and interviewed Ashley Chavon Roberts, Levy Lewis Jenkins, and Jeremy Lance Lewis. The investigation into Carothers’ murder found the three committed acts which hindered Carter’s capture.

As a result, Roberts, 24, Jenkins, 34, and Lewis, 32, have each been charged with one count of Hindering Apprehension or Punishment of Criminal (felony) and one count of Felony Murder in Carothers’ death
