Published on Dec 31, 2017
A New Year's Eve domestic disturbance call sparked an “ambush-style” attack that left one deputy dead, four others injured and two civilians wounded at an apartment complex just south of Denver.
The suspect fired off around 100 rounds with a rifle at the Copper Canyon apartment community in Highlands Ranch, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said.
“They all went down, almost within seconds of each other,” Spurlock said.
The unnamed suspect, who died during the attack, was known to law enforcement, Spurlock said. He did not reveal exactly how the suspect died.
