El Paso County Sheriff's Office honors fallen deputy

El Paso County Sheriff's Office honors fallen deputy

"A number of other officers" were at the scene but not injured, El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder said, calling the shooting "senseless violence".

Officers from three Colorado agencies investigating an auto theft were confronted by a man at an apartment complex in Colorado Springs about 4 p.m., Colorado Springs Police Chief Pete Carey said at a press conference.

As a family, we thank the communities of Colorado Springs, El Paso County, the State of Colorado and our entire Nation for the abundance of love that has been poured out.

"It is with profound sadness that I say that this afternoon, Deputy Micah Flick, 34 years old, was shot in the line of duty and has died". "I also want the community to know that this is a courageous agency and that the men and women of the El Paso County Sheriff's Office will continue to serve this community".

The fatal shooting of Deputy Micah Flick is the third member of Colorado law enforcement to be killed in a little over five weeks. He leaves behind a wife and 7-year-old twins.

Officer Zack Parrish, with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, was responding to a domestic disturbance and died in the "ambush-style" attack on New Year's Eve.

Monday was Flick's 11th anniversary of serving with the sheriff's office.

The suspect was shot and killed by police.

Police say a civilian was also injured.

A civilian was also shot and is in unknown condition.

Elder said the three deputies were in plain clothes at the time of the shooting, but all wore their badges and announced who they were when they attempted to make the arrest. Two suspects are dead, and a third is in custody and facing murder charges.

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

Support from other law enforcement agencies has been a constant for friends, families and fellow officers impacted by these deaths.

"She was moved so much by the level of service that deputy Gumm provided to her son that she took the time to reach out and make sure that we knew", Sheriff Michael McIntosh said.

"There were a number of other officers at the scene who were not injured", Elder added.

Gov. John Hickenlooper ordered that flags on state buildings be lowered.

1 of the injured deputies is still in surgery tonight.

Monday's shooting marked the along the Front Range since December 31, and four other deputies have been wounded.
