An early morning New Year’s Eve domestic disturbance call sparked a mass shooting that has left at least one deputy dead, four others injured and two civilians wounded in an apartment complex just south of Denver.
The suspect, who is now believed to be dead, is no longer a threat to the public, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said.
Law enforcement officers are escorting the body of a deputy killed in a shooting in suburban Denver.
A line of officers on motorcycles and patrol cars left the hospital where the deputy was taken after Sunday’s shooting that followed a domestic disturbance.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says the deputy was among five deputies and two civilians who were shot at an apartment complex in Highlands Ranch 16 miles south of Denver. The suspected gunman was also shot and the sheriff’s office says he’s believed to be dead.
