VIDEO: CO Sheriff Details How Deputy was Killed, 4 LEOs Wounded on New Year's Eve

CO Sheriff Details How Deputy was Killed, 4 LEOs Wounded on New Year's Eve

The Douglas County (CO) Sheriff's Office has released a video in which Sheriff Tony Spurlock explains in detail what happened before, during, and after the Dec. 31 incident in which Dep. Zackari Parrish was killed and four other law enforcement officers were wounded.

Posted on the Douglas County SO's Facebook page, the video includes redacted footage from body cameras worn by multiple officers during the incident at the Copper Canyon Apartments in Highlands Ranch. The footage includes contact with the shooter, the sounds of numerous gun shots, and the wounded officers receiving first aid.

The Facebook post says: With permission and support from the Zackari Parrish family, as well as that of the injured deputies and their families, this video is intended to communicate directly with the employees of the Sheriff’s Office, Douglas County and the communities we serve and to you about what happened in the early morning hours of Sunday, December 31.

Using body cam video and audio from deputies who were directly involved in the shooting, the video allows the viewer to hear the compassion with which Zackari Parrish interacted with the citizen, the attempts at helping the citizen, the storm of gunfire that deputies encountered from the citizen, and the attempts at a rescue of our deputy.

In the production of this video, we have removed all images and audio of the suspect, being sensitive to the families involved, our employees and members of our community impacted by this tragedy.

Because the video contains images and sounds from actual Law Enforcement Body Worn Cameras, viewer discretion is advised."

This piece of garbage just wanted to kill police officers and he didn't care who or what department they worked for. Thank goodness that he is now dead because I don't know if Colorado has the insanity defense or not.
