Deputy Killed In Colorado Springs Shooting

El Paso County Deputy Micah Flick, 34, was killed while he and other officers were investigating a stolen vehicle in Colorado Springs, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) south of Denver, authorities said.

Three other law enforcement officers and one civilian were injured in the shooting.

Colorado, deputy and Colorado Springs officers have been taken to the hospital for treatment.

Flick, who was a detective, had celebrated his 11th anniversary with the sheriff's department on Monday, El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder said.

Carey said one officer of the Colorado Springs Police Department was in surgery on Monday night and in stable condition.

In a statement, Colorado governor John Hickenlooper called Flick's death a "senseless act of violence" and asked Colorado residents to provide sympathy to his family and pray for the injured. He has done so many things in this department in his 11 years. The suspect died on scene.

Police say the sole suspect is dead, and there is no further threat to the community. A civilian was also injured in the incident.
