Suspect in shooting of Adams County Deputy identified

Adams Co. Sheriff's Office

Shooting at 88th and Dawson in Thornton

"Tonight we watched as a community was on edge and a sheriff's deputy was shot while responding to a call in Adams County", the governor said just past 10 p.m.

The Adams County Sheriff's Office has said the alleged gunman was arrested shortly after Wednesday night's shooting of Deputy Heath Gumm.

That's when police say the suspect pulled out a handgun and started to shoot at deputies, striking Gumm in the chest.

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

When the protest intensified the Arab MPs were forcibly removed from the Israeli parliament with the help of security staff. Israel sees Jerusalem as its "eternal" capital and Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

One suspect was taken into custody but police are still hunting for two other people believed to be involved.

A police spokesperson said the suspect is considered risky and if that person was willing to shoot a cop, they could shoot anyone. He had been with the Adam's County Sheriff's Office since 2013.

A manhunt ended early Thursday morning in Colorado after the fatal shooting of an Adams County Sheriff's deputy.

Other residents showed their support for Gumm, other deputies and police in different ways.
