New Details Released About Shootout That Killed El Paso County Sheriff's Deputy

Flick was shot while responding to a motor vehicle theft investigation on Monday afternoon.

Authorities say a vehicle theft suspect fired a semi-automatic handgun during a shootout that left a Colorado sheriff's deputy dead. Officers returned fire, killing Zetina. Two other deputies were injured as well as a Colorado Springs officer, who is in surgery. "But unfortunately the last few years there has been a lack of respect for the men and women that are there to protect our communities and frankly it just shocks me, it shocks my staff, it shocks the leadership of law enforcement across the country", Sheriff Bill Elder said Tuesday morning during a news conference. He was released from the hospital in good condition Monday night.

An El Paso County Sheriff's deputy works the scene of a shooting in Colorado Springs, Colo., Feb. 5, 2018.

An adult male civilian walking in the area was shot and wounded.

The nonprofit National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund said that 128 law enforcement officers were killed on the job in 2017.

The CSPD detective shot in the incident is identified as Marcus Yanez.

"Deputy Flick was an outstanding member of my agency, and he will be missed", Elder said. All three deputies, including Flick, were wearing body armor at the time they were shot.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says Sgt. Monday was his 11th anniversary with the department, and he left behind a wife and 7-year-old twins. It is a loss for our agency, it is a loss for our community. He was referring to the February 5 shooting death of Detective Micah Flick, 34, who was working with other law enforcement officers on a routine arrest that didn't require a call-out of the tactical team.

"We will once more come together to provide sympathy and strength for the deputy's loved ones and pray for the recovery of those injured; however, we also must come together and say enough is enough", he said in a statement.

"I think anytime we lose an officer in Colorado or across the nation, we always feel indebted to that person and their service", said an officer at the funeral of Deputy Parrish.

The governor ordered flags to be lowered to half-staff at all public buildings starting Tuesday until the day of Flick's funeral. A procession took Deputy Flick's body to the coroner's office Monday evening.
