Cop saves suicidal man who fled from cops and threatened to kill himself

Marion County deputies have Sean Shea behind bars for domestic abuse charges.

Deputies say Shea battered and strangled a female victim at a home on County Road 25 then fled the scene.

Deputies were able to track him down with the help of a K-9, but when they reached him Shea threatened that he had a gun and a knife and would jill himself.

They were able to get Shea to peacefully surrender and discovered he did not have a gun but he did have a knife.

During the search the deputy and the K-9 stepped into a yellow jackets nest and were stung multiple times but have since recovered and are back on the job.
