Deputy, Suspect Both Wounded in Shooting
A Douglas County Sheriff's Deputy and a suspect were wounded in exchange of gunfire on Sunday. The sheriff's office say the shooting occurred early Sunday morning on Highway 83 near Franktown, about 20 miles south of Denver.
Deputies were responding to a report of someone with a gun when they spotted the suspect's car. The suspect was reported to have opened fire on the deputies, wounding one of them while the car was stopped. The deputy returned fire and critically wounded the suspect, who was hospitalized.
The deputy and suspect have not yet been identified, and it is still not clear how many shots were fired. The deputy was treated and released Monday morning.
