(CNN) — A deputy stopped to help a motorist in Utah on Thursday, and the motorist allegedly shot him dead. Then he wounded two more deputies while running from the law.

That\’s how Utah County Sheriff Jim Tracy described a high-speed, bullet-riddled rampage that went on for 50 miles across two counties, until officers were able to corner a suspect.

They critically wounded him in a shootout — it was the fourth time the man opened fire while on the run, the sheriff said.

The slain officer was Sgt. Cory Wride, a deputy who had been on the force for 19 years. Tracy knew him well and thought highly of him, he told journalists at a news conference. Wride worked directly under him for three years.
