  • Law-enforcement official shot in Adams County; suspect at large

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Adams County Sheriff's Office and the family and friends of the deputy killed.

One suspect was taken into in custody late Wednesday, according to KUSA.

A police spokesperson said the suspect is considered unsafe and if that person was willing to shoot a cop, they could shoot anyone.

Hearing the news, police officers from across Colorado made their way to the Denver Health hospital to pay their respects.

Only a vague description of the two male suspects was available.

"Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers, as this is a very hard time for everyone".

The sheriff's office tweeted Wednesday night that an officer was "down" and that investigators had set a large perimeter in their search for a suspect.


Adams 12 closed the Early Childhood Education Center, the Bollman Technical Education Center, Thornton Elementary School, the International School at Thornton Middle, Thornton High School, and McElwain and Coronado Hills elementary schools. "The whole state's heart is going to break". It's located outside an Adams County Sheriff's substation where it's assumed Gumm worked.

"I knew him", Talmadge said.

After leading deputies behind a house, a suspect turned and fired on them - hitting one in the chest, the sheriff's office spokesperson says. "They do a good job for all of us, and they put their lives on the line every day 24 hours a day, and we appreciate their service".

The Adams County Sheriff's Office tweeted out information at 7:08 p.m. that sent concern and fear across the metro region.

So far a memorial service hasn't been scheduled for Gumm.

The Colorado Police Foundation has set up a donation site for the deputy's surviving family.
