Donate to Douglas County's Fallen Officer Fund

Multiple deputies down in active situation outside of Denver

The wounded deputies tried to pull the fallen officer, identified as Zackari Parrish, out of the line of further gunfire but were unable to due to their own injuries and only managed to "crawl to safety", Mr Spurlock said.

"It was very hard to go see Zack for the last time today", Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock told reporters on Sunday.

All four of the deputies wounded in the confrontation were in stable condition, Mr Spurlock said, and two civilians were recovering from "non-life-threatening" injuries.

The wounded officers are sheriff's deputies Michael Doyle, 28, Taylor Davis, 30, Jeffrey Pelle, 32, and Castle Rock Police Officer Tom 0'Donnell, 41.

Officers attempted to engage the suspect in a dialogue before fatally shooting him, Spurlock said.

A law enforcement motorcade accompanied the fallen officer from a hospital in nearby Littleton to the coroner's office on Sunday.

The suspect was familiar to the Douglas County Sheriffs Department and had law enforcement contact on numerous occasions - even as recent as a month ago.

Parish leaves behind a wife and two young children.

As the incident unfurled, the sheriff's office advised local residents to take cover in place and stay away from windows.

He and the other officers were called to the property at about 05:00 (12:00 GMT) after neighbours confirmed about a verbal disturbance involving two male roommates at the property.

"Officers were called to a residence on a disturbance, once they were there, they were met with gunfire from the suspect", Sheriff Tony Spurlock said at a news conference, reported NBC.

Deputies were later called back to the scene, and were given a key to enter the apartment.

The incident began about 5:17 a.m. when the first deputy arrived at the Copper Canyon Apartments in Highlands Ranch, about 20 miles south of Denver.

On Wednesday, police said the suspect had legally purchased 11 firearms from a Wyoming store between 2010 and 2013, although it was not clear if any of those guns were used in the shooting, the Associated Press reported.

9NEWS has learned the suspect responsible for the "ambush-style" attack on officers in Douglas County Sunday morning is Matthew Riehl.

"I can't tell you how hard it is for a leader to sit down with the spouse of an officer who was killed in the line of duty", Mr Spurlock said.
