Deputy dies, three others hospitalized after shooting

Authorities say 34-year-old El Paso County sheriff's Deputy Micah Flick was shot Monday while investigating a stolen vehicle in Colorado Springs, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) south of Denver.

A Colorado Springs police officer was also shot and taken to the hospital.

Manuel Zetina, 19, struggled with officers after he exited a stolen vehicle and was confronted in the parking lot of an apartment complex Monday afternoon, according to Colorado Springs police.

Authorities say a auto theft suspect fired a semi-automatic handgun during a shootout that left a Colorado sheriff's deputy dead. Two El Paso County Sheriff officers were struck and are hospitalized.

Sheriff Bill Elder, at the podium, and others gathered to honor fallen Deputy Micah Flick on February 6. Flick is survived by his wife and 7 year old twins.

Last month, a 22-year-old man was charged with the murder of Adams County Deputy Sheriff Heath Gumm, 31, who was gunned down after he and other deputies responded to reports of an assault near the city of Thornton, about 10 miles north of Denver. Monday marked his 11th anniversary on the job.

The suspect was also fatally shot and died at the scene of the incident.

Flick "will be missed", Elder said.

Four other law enforcement officers and two civilians were wounded, and the gunman was killed in the shootout.

Ancient spiders, preserved in amber
Amber can give us an unprecedented view into prehistoric life, preserving softer elements that regular fossilization just can't. The first Uraraneida fossil was discovered in NY state in the U.S. in 1987 and was initially misidentified as a spider.

"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. A male suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

"This indeed is a hard day for our agencies", Carey said.

Flick is the third law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in five weeks.

"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", the governor said in a statement.

"A senseless act of violence has claimed the life of another member of Colorado's law enforcement family". His name has not been publicly released by authorities.

Hickenlooper ordered that flags be flown at half-staff at public buildings across the state beginning Tuesday and lasting until sunset on the day of Flick's funeral.

The shooting comes just days after the funeral for Adams County Deputy Heath Gumm, who was shot January 24 while chasing a suspect.
