  • Deputy killed, 4 others wounded in Colorado Springs

One deputy is dead and two other officers were injured in a "critical incident" involving Colorado Springs officers and deputies from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office Monday afternoon, law enforcement sources tell Scripps station KMGH in Denver.

That deputy was identified as 34-year-old Micah Flick.

"He is survived by his wife and 7-year-old twins".

One woman whose husband worked with Deputy Flick remembered him fondly. They were taken to a nearby hospital for their injuries.
