The officers were shot after responding to an initial report of domestic violence at the Copper Canyon Apartments just after 5 a.m., Sheriff Tony Spurlock said in a news conference.
Deputy Sheriff Zackari Parrish was pronounced dead at the hospital, where other law enforcement soon after formed a large memorial procession heading to the county coroner's office. During the investigation, shots were fired and multiple deputies were injured, the agency reported. Two civilians were also injured by the suspect's gunfire. It also said it had no status on possible civilian injuries. A motorcade escorted the body of the fallen officer from a nearby hospital in Littleton, Colo. "It was nearly immediately after that" that the suspect shot the officers. The Boulder County Sheriff's Office could not tell us what his condition is. The sheriff's office tweeted he is believed to be "no longer a threat".
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Parker Police Department, Lone Tree Police Department, Castle Rock Police Department and Colorado State Patrol are all on accident alert because of this incident. Authorities say an emergency shelter has been set up for those displaced by the shooting.
