Authorities investigating the scene where a Broadwater County Sheriff’s Office was allegedly shot and killed early Tuesday morning, have towed away the patrol car out of the area. 

The deputy, Mason Moore is a three year veteran of the sheriff's office. He was a husband and a father of three children.

Interstate 90 near Three Forks has been closed to traffic all morning since the shooting happened.
