DCSO was involved in a pursuit following an attempted felony stop.

A Code Red alert has been issued by the sheriff's department, warning citizens to stay indoors as the shooter is believed to still be at large.

A man fired more than 100 rounds at sheriff's deputies early Sunday, killing one and injuring four others, before being fatally shot himself in what authorities called an ambush.

"During the Investigation, shots were fired and multiple deputies were injured".

According to the Denver Post, gunfire broke out as Sheriff's deputies responded to calls of a disturbance.


About 5:15 a.m., deputies responded to the Copper Canyon Apartments complex at 3404 E. County Line Road in Highlands Ranch, between Colorado and University boulevards. The landscaped apartment complex is 16 miles south of Denver.

"All of them were shot very, very quickly", he said. So far there have been no reports as to their status, nor on any civilian casualties.

As the incident was still unfolding, police asked people to avoid the area and for those nearby to shelter in place.

An hour later, the sheriff's office tweeted that "multiple deputies" were down but couldn't update their conditions. He previously was with the Castle Rock Police Department.
