“Two light-skinned black males or dark-skinned Hispanic males dressed in all black.  Officer down, please avoid the area of 88th and Dawston Street.  Large perimeter with suspect still at large.  Seek shelter away from the doors and windows.”

Deputy Gumm was transported to Denver Health Medical Center, where shortly after he was pronounced deceased.  Officers from all over the metro area gathered at the hospital, flashing their patrol car lights without sirens.

Senior Officer Amanda Overton was fighting back tears during her debriefing to local news, where she talked about Officer Gumm and the “overwhelming sadness” of his passing.

“We’re praying for the wife and family of our fallen deputy. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.”



SWAT teams arrived on scene and locked down the area and they used a drone to search for the suspects.

Drones are reportedly flying over a Colorado neighborhood to assist in the manhunt for suspects in the Wednesday night killing of an Adams County sheriff’s deputy, a report said.

The drone was spotted over a neighborhood near the shooting, a KDVR reporter at the scene tweeted. The drones were “extremely discreet,” the reporter’s tweet read.

The drones’ exact location were not disclosed due to the ongoing investigation, the tweet said.

The Adams County Sherriff’s Office told Fox News that it cannot confirm or deny its use of drones. The office, referring to its Twitter for updates, said suspects are still at large and would not be providing any additional information until tomorrow.

At a nearby 7-Eleven, employee Paul Singh arrived to work, where he said the Police requested that he close the store while the manhunt continued.  Paul did as he was asked and he said it was a cold night so he decided to serve the Officers Hot Coffee while the investigation continued.

Late in the evening, a man and woman pulled up to an Adams County sheriff’s substation. He pounded an American flag into the ground, and they two left flowers. The man, who declined to be identified, said, “We’re all family, brothers and sisters.”

“Tonight we watched as a community was on edge and a sheriff’s deputy was shot while responding to a call in Adams County,” Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said in a statement. “We are deeply saddened to learn that the deputy has died from injuries sustained in the shooting. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Adams County Sheriff’s Office and the family and friends of the deputy killed. The investigation is ongoing and authorities continue to work to restore calm to the area.”

“It’s 34° on a Wednesday at midnight…and yet the community is lining up, flags in hand to honor the fallen hero. Rest easy, sir. ????????????

In today’s society of thugs and criminals, it is organizations like Black Lives Matter that teach and preach hate towards LEO and educate their youth to shoot and kill Police Officers.  These pathetic scumbags celebrate such acts of hate and violence.

Men and women who become Officers to serve and protect, need to know that you not only appreciate their service but stand united with their duty.

I know an extremely few that wear the uniform have given their brothers and sisters a bad name, that is with ANY that wear uniforms.

I choose to not only stand united with those who serve and protect, I have their 6.  I worked as a civilian EMT I/D and worked with LEO, as all EMS do when called out.

So when you see an Officer, thank them, shake their hands and wish them well, who knows, you may need them to save your life one day.

God Bless our Officers and may they always be humble and diligent, may they always serve and protect and go home at the end of their shifts.
