Sheriff's Office Identifies Deputy Killed In Shooting

At a news conference in Colorado Springs, the El Paso County Sheriff identified the fallen officer as 34-year-old Micah Flick. He has a wife and seven-year-old twins. The office called him an "outstanding member who will be missed".

Only hours after learning about his tragic death, they say they are still in complete disbelief, absolutely heartbroken they had to watch the body of someone they had considered family for 30 years now to be taken to the Coroner's Office at the end of his powerful procession. As a result, a civilian was injured by gunfire and transported to Memorial Hospital.

There was a struggle, and the suspect, an adult male, fired at the officers, Carey said.

El Paso County Sheriff Deputy Micha Flick was shot and killed in Colorado Springs on Monday.

The names of the injured officers, the bystander and the suspect were not immediately released.

A Colorado sheriff's deputy was shot dead, while three other officers suffered gunshot wounds in the line of duty Monday, while investigating a motor vehicle theft.
