A 12-year member of the sheriff’s office was pronounced dead at the scene, KDVR.com 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.
