DOUGLAS COUNTY -

Along with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, many around the nation are mourning the death of 29-year old Deputy Zackari Parish, who was shot Sunday morning while responding to a call in Highlands Ranch.

All together seven people were shot in the incident, not including the suspect, who was also shot, and police believe is now dead. Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said police were responding to reports of a disturbance at an apartment complex in Highlands Ranch. When the suspect had barricaded himself in a bedroom and fired more than 100 rounds in what Spurlock describes as an "ambush" attack on officers.
