They also said two civilians have also been shot by the suspect.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said via its Twitter account that shots were fired in the course of the investigation and "multiple" deputies were injured.

A so far undisclosed number of Sheriff's deputies were shot Sunday morning and a Douglas County Sheriff's Office SWAT team is at the scene, a home near the 3400 block of County Line Road, according to Lauren Lekander, DCSO spokeswoman.

The shootings happened at an apartment complex 16 miles (28 kilometers) south of Denver.

The suspect was believed to have been killed, investigators said.

Deputies responded to the report of shots fired around 6am.

A hospital where three people were taken for treatment says those people suffered noncritical injuries. We love our police and law enforcement - God Bless them all!

The sheriff's office issued a code red for any citizens in the affected area. Residents in the vicinity were asked to shelter in place, and avoid windows and exterior walls.

An emergency shelter was set up at East Ridge Recreation Center at 9568 University Boulevard in Highlands Ranch.

Deputy Sheriff Zackari Parrish was pronounced dead at the hospital, where other law enforcement soon after formed a large memorial procession heading to the county coroner's office.
