A deputy is dead after a shooting in Wake County, according to the sheriff's office.

ABC 11, Channel 9′s sister station in Raleigh, reported the shooting happened around 11 p.m. on Thursday in eastern Wake County.

The Wake County Sheriff confirmed a deputy had died early Friday morning.

Sheriff Gerald Baker held back tears during a press conference on the deadly shooting, ABC 11 reported.

"We will find who's responsible for this loss," Baker said. "Even in the midst of the hurt and the pain, we ask for prayers, we ask for patience as we go about finding out what happened and who's responsible."

ABC 11 reported several agencies responded to the shooting near a gas station on Auburn Knightdale Road and Battle Bridge Road not far from River Ridge Golf Club in Raleigh.

Information has not been made available on the deputy's identity or the suspect in the case.

Six deputies have been shot in North Carolina in recent weeks.

A deputy in Caswell County was shot Wednesday morning while serving a warrant. Three Wayne County deputies were shot, including deputy Sgt. Matthew Fishman who was killed, while serving involuntary committal papers earlier this month.

Last month, a Simpson County deputy was hurt in a shooting outside Roseboro.
