"Deputy Flick was an outstanding member of my agency and he will be missed", Sheriff Bill Elder said. "When deputies, troopers and officers are out in the field, we can't fall into an us-versus-them in the community".

The suspect involved was killed, Carey said.

"Our thoughts are with the family of El Paso County Sheriff's Deputy Micah Flick and the three wounded officers", Democrat Michael Bennet said.

The governor has ordered flags to fly at half-staff on public buildings until sunset on the day of Deputy Flick's funeral. The suspect was not named, but died at the scene.

Adams County Deputy Heath Gumm, 31, was shot and killed January 24 during a chase that followed a fight at an apartment complex near Thornton.
