Multiple Deputies Shot in CO, SWAT at Scene

December 31, 2017  | 

Multiple Douglas County (CO) Sheriff’s deputies were shot Sunday morning and a Sheriff’s Office SWAT team is at the scene, according to Lauren Lekander, DCSO spokeswoman. Some local media outlets say three deputies are down.

“We have multiple officers down,” said Deputy Jason Blanchard of the incident in Highlands Ranch. “We are not giving numbers or status at this point, we are still working on getting the suspect in custody.”

Deputies were responding to a disturbance call when shots were fired from the home before 6 a.m., Lekander told the Denver Post.

“We have SWAT out there setting up and preparing to go in right now,” Lekander said at about 7:15 a.m.

Video broadcast by Denver 7 shows an Arapahoe County Sheriff Bomb Squad truck at the scene.
