One police officer killed and two wounded by gunman in Colorado Springs

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office in a Facebook statement told of Flick being fatally wounded on Monday along with three other law enforcement officers and a bystander following an altercation with a suspected auto thief. Two El Paso County Sheriff officers were struck and are hospitalized.

Sheriff Bill Elder identified the deceased at Micah Flick, 34, an 11-year officer survived by a wife and 7-year-old twins.

"Our thoughts are with the family of El Paso County Sheriff's Deputy Micah Flick and the three wounded officers", Democrat Michael Bennet said. Neither the sheriff's office or CSPD has so far confirmed the deaths or injuries, but have said all suspects "are accounted for".

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper released a statement Monday evening urging citizens to "come together and say enough is enough". He has done so many things in this department in his 11 years. Authorities confirm the suspect is dead and no other suspects are at large.

The suspect was killed at the scene.

Two other El Paso sheriff's deputies were also shot and injured.

Officials in Colorado Springs are describing an incident that drew a massive law-enforcement response as an "officer involved shooting".
