DENVER -- Five sheriff's deputies in Colorado were shot, one of them fatally, while responding to a call about a domestic disturbance on Sunday morning.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said the deputies responded to a call from an apartment complex in Highlands Ranch, a few miles south of Denver, shortly after 5 a.m. Mountain time. The gunman opened fire, wounding two civilians. The gunman, whom authorities have not named, was later shot by deputies and is "believed to be dead," the sheriff's office said.
Authorities also have not named the deceased or injured officers, or the civilians. Deputy Jason Blanchard, spokesman for the sheriff's office, said no other information will be released until a news conference later Sunday.
