A Sheriff’s Deputy and one other person died this morning following a shoot-out in El Dorado Springs.  According to reports, the deputy attempted to make a traffic stop near the  intersection of Highways 54 and 82 when the driver sped off and a chase ensued.  That chase ended a few miles later and a passenger jumped out of the vehicle.  The deputy then chased the suspect on foot which led to a physical fight and shots fired.
The deputy died from his injuries at a nearby hospital. He’s been identified as 25-year-old Matthew Chism.  The passenger, who also died, has not been identified.
The driver is a 28-year-old man from El Dorado.  He was taken into custody a short time later.
