Rookie Deputy killed in Colorado

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/12/31...t-sheriff.html

Initial reports advised "ambush style" encounter at the apartment. A rookie deputy was killed, three other deputies, a police officer and two citizens injured. Gunman was an Iraq vet, article says he was deployed "briefly" with the Army. Appears that he had a beef with local law enforcement.

RIP to the fallen.

Fucking shame too that it was an Iraqi war vet. Apparently, it was the second call to that apartment that day. All over a rif against the sheriff.

RIP Brother. May the remaining wounded heal quickly, and I hope it hurt when the shooter got his.

I'll be very surprised if it doesn't turn out that there were some mental health issues.

RIP Deputy, condolences to his wife and children.

Just saw some body cam footage of the incident. Redacted of course and not in its entirety for obvious reasons, but still chilling.
