Agencies across Colorado have sent their condolences and support to Colorado Springs Police and El Paso County Sheriff's Deputies. Flick is the third deputy killed in Colorado since December 31st. 

Governor Hickenlooper issued a statement on the death of the deputy and the others injured involving gun violence:

“A senseless act of violence has claimed the life of another member of Colorado’s law enforcement family. Late this afternoon, we learned that El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Micah Flick was killed, two other deputies were injured, as was a Colorado Springs police officer and two bystanders. With the recent loss of now three deputies and many others injured, there’s no denying the grave impact this sequence of shootings is having on our state.

“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. We want each officer, every deputy, to know we are grateful for their service.”

Colorado Representative Doug Lamborn also issued a statement as people around the state continue to mourn yet another fallen officer.

"With a heavy heart, I join all of Colorado in mourning the tragic death of El Paso County Deputy Sheriff Detective Micah Flick. The eleven-year veteran was killed in the line of duty tonight in Colorado Springs. Three other El Paso County Sheriff's Deputies and a Colorado Springs Police Officer we're injured in the same incident. I ask all of Colorado and the nation to join me in prayer for our law enforcement officers and their families,"
