A suspect, who was not immediately identified, was killed in the gunfire, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Jacki Kelley told the Denver Post. It was unclear if a deputy shot the suspect or if he shot himself.

The notice was served at around 9:30 a.m. local time. The three deputies approached the home when the suspect fired a rifle at them.

A 12-year member of the sheriff’s office was pronounced dead at the scene, reported and the injured deputies were taken to St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood.

The injured deputies were identifed as an 11-year veteran who suffered life-threatening injuries and the other was a 21-year veteran. He suffered nonlife-threatening injures.

The incident occurred in the Park County mountain town of Bailey. Law enforcement officers are investigating the property with the assistance of a bomb squad that was dispatched out of an “abundance of caution.”

“It’s a dark day,” Susan Medina, a police spokeswoman said.

God bless and watch over all of our law enforcement officers and their families.
