PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — A tire deflation device — a common tool used by police across the country to stop fleeing suspects — is at the core of the investigation into the deaths of two Palm Beach County sheriff's deputies killed early Wednesday by a fellow deputy chasing a stolen car.

Deputies Donta J. Manuel, 33, and Jonathan D. Wallace, 23, were struck and killed by a sheriff's cruiser while trying to remove tire-deflation spikes that they had launched across a desolate stretch of State Road 715.
