Tucson man indicted in fatal shooting of deputy US marshal

December 29, 2018

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A federal indictment charges a Tucson man in the Nov. 29 killing of a deputy U.S. marshal.

The indictment issued Thursday accuses Ryan Phillip Schlesinger of murder in the death of Deputy Marshal Chase White, the attempted murder of three other deputy marshals and other crimes.

White was shot Nov. 29 when he and other members of the Marshals Service were at a home to serve a warrant to Schlesinger in the alleged stalking a female police sergeant.

Two deputy public defenders listed in court records as representing Schlesinger did not immediately respond Saturday to an emailed request for comment on the allegations.

Schlesinger was arrested after a standoff.
