'Multiple deputies down' at Colorado apartment complex

'Multiple deputies down' at Colorado apartment complex

Five officers were shot and one was left dead after responding to a domestic violence call in Denver on Sunday.

Except for the deputy who was killed, none of the other victims suffered life-threatening injuries, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said at a press conference on Sunday afternoon. One deputy, Zackari Parrish, was killed. The episode happened in the area of County Line Road between Colorado and University Boulevards in Highlands Ranch, Colo., about 15 miles south of Denver.

"It was very hard to go see Zack for the last time today", Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock told reporters on Sunday.

The office said there's no word on the health status of the deputies who have been hurt and it's not clear if there are others who are injured. The four deputies, identified as Michael Doyle, Taylor Davis, Jeffery Pelle, and Tom O'Donnell too are stable. Spurlock said the suspect wielded a rifle and fired more than 100 rounds in the encounter.

The vigil for 29-year-old Douglas County Deputy Zackari Parrish will be held at Mission Hills Community Church in Littleton, Colorado - the church that Parrish attended with his wife and young daughters.

Parrish was a father with two children, and a "good kid, a smiley kid" who was "eager to work and eager to serve", Spurlock said.

Residents in the area were put on "code red" alert and told to stay inside away from windows during the incident. The exact number of injured police officers is unknown.

Police initially responded to the same apartment at around 3 a.m. Sunday in response to a noise disturbance call, but left when there was no noise after they arrived.

BuzzFeed News has contacted the Douglas County Sheriff's Office for more information.

Campus officers called police in Lone Tree, Colorado, in mid-November to warn them about Riehl, suggesting his rants were indicative of mental illness, UW Police Chief Mike Samp told The Denver Post.

President Donald Trump and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper each offered their condolences to the family and Sheriff's Office.

"Four officers were injured and one officer was killed in the line of duty".

Deputy Parrish died on scene from multiple gunshot wounds, Spurlock says his injuries were so severe he had no chance of survival.

The shooting occurred around 5 a.m. local time outside an apartment complex in Douglas county and, after a prolonged search, authorities say the attacker is now "believed to be dead".
