  • Colorado Deputy Killed After Responding To Vehicle Theft

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.

The lone suspect was also killed, authorities said.

The shooting occurred as Flick and three other officers were trying to detain a car-theft suspect in Colorado Springs. Elder said that Monday was the 11th anniversary of Flick's hiring at the sheriff's department.

He was an 11-year veteran of the sheriff's department. A civilian was among the injured, he said. The procession for Flick was scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Two other sheriff's deputies were wounded, but Elder did not disclose their conditions.

The governor has ordered flags to fly at half-staff on public buildings until sunset on the day of Deputy Flick's funeral.
