  • Colorado Governor: Officer deaths have 'grave impact'

El Paso County sheriff's deputy Micah Flick was shot and killed Monday during a struggle with a male suspect with a gun.

Police said the only suspect was shot and killed, while three other law enforcement officers and a bystander were injured by gunfire.

The injured officers were hospitalized and their names were not revealed.

A procession will take a slain El Paso County sheriff's deputy across Colorado Springs at 7:30 p.m. Monday, the Sheriff's Office said.

"State Patrol, sheriff's office and the Colorado Springs Police Department, our hearts are all broken", he said.

He leaves behind a wife and 7-year-old twins (one boy and one girl), the sheriff's office said.

A Colorado Springs police officer who was shot is in surgery and in stable condition.

Smith, who just finished a one-year term as president of the County Sheriffs of Colorado, said in 31 years in law enforcement he has never attended so many officer funerals so close together. Authorities confirm the suspect is dead and no other suspects are at large.

"This is indeed a hard day for our agencies", Carey said.

Police say a civilian was also injured.

"Once again, a member of Colorado law enforcement has made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting the community", Gardner said in a series of social media tweets. Today was Flick's 11th anniversary at the Sheriff's Office. One deputy involved in the shooting has died.

Multiple sources are saying that a El Paso County Deputy has died. Two other sheriff's deputies were shot, but their conditions were unclear Monday night. That's in the city of Colorado Springs.

On Dec. 31, Douglas County Deputy Zachary Parrish was shot and killed during an ambush at a Highlands Ranch apartment complex.

"In a very freaky way, these tragedies bring out the best in our communities", he said.
