    Deputy wounded by gunman during chase in Kalamazoo County dies

    Galesburg — A deputy sheriff critically wounded by a suspect who police said fired at deputies during a chase Saturday has died, the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday evening.

    “It is with a heavy heart and deep regret that we announce Deputy Ryan Proxmire has succumb to his injuries,” the office posted on Facebook. “Please keep Dep. Proxmire, his family and his law enforcement family in your thoughts as we begin to grieve this tragic loss.”

    The suspect was killed when deputies returned fire after he fired shots after getting out of his vehicle when the chase ended in a field, the Sheriff’s Office said.

    Deputies encountered the suspect Saturday evening at a gas station in Galesburg after he was reportedly involved in a chase earlier in the day with a neighboring law enforcement agency, the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
