One sheriff's deputy shot dead and four injured in Colorado shootout

Police swarmed what they say is still an active scene

"Earlier this morning, our son, Douglas County sheriff's deputy, Jeff Pelle, was shot during the Copper Canyon shooting".

Part of the investigation will include determining the number of weapons the suspect used and whether they legally belonged to him. Another nearby hospital said it received four patients but wouldn't release their conditions.

Two other people living in adjacent apartments in the complex were also shot in the incident, police said.

"If anybody bothers me, that's why I've had a couple of scotches", he said on live-streaming app Periscope.

The suspect was shot and is "believed to be dead", according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Twitter account.

According to Spurlock, Riehl had "previous contacts" with Douglas County deputies, but had never been arrested and had no criminal record.

Riehl was known to law enforcement, Spurlock said. "He was in our class", Robert Butler, the lead instructor of the company where the suspect took the course told the New York Times. Riehl's "demeanor during the training sessions was not alarming", company owner Robert Butler said in statement.

Photos of Riehl and his vehicle were attached to the email.

Riehl's Facebook page was filled with images associated with the alt-right. "From snowboarding in the backcountry, to his job as a Douglas County police officer".

Detectives at the University of Wyoming in Laramie said they called and warned police that suspect Matthew Edward Riehl had emailed threats against professors at the school - where he earned a law degree - and showed signs of mental illness.

Four Douglas County, Colorado sheriff's deputies were wounded and one was killed during a shooting incident in suburban Denver Sunday.

"The suspect was just making a ton of noise and annoying everyone around him", Mr Spurlock said.

Police were called to Riehl's apartment Sunday for a dispute between Riehl and someone else at the apartment building. When they returned they spoke with Riehl, who barricaded himself in a bedroom before suddenly opening fire with a rifle.

It was not clear in which order the men were shot.

Officers were given a key to the apartment and permission to enter, but once they walked in, officers said they were immediately under fire.

Among the wounded, five were deputies of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

Students were also told to be on the lookout for Riehl's red Ford "Foxbody" Mustang with Colorado plates near the college.

"We respond to every call anticipating that everyone has a gun".

Law enforcement members formed a procession to escort the body of the murdered Zackari Parrish from the hospital.
