Seven people were shot, one of them fatally, when officers from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office in Colorado, south of Denver, responded to a domestic dispute Sunday morning. Five of the people shot were sheriff's deputies, including the person who was killed. The shooter was also shot and is believed to be dead, and it is unclear at this time how serious the other injuries may be.

The shooting took place in an apartment complex, where residents were encouraged to shelter in place and avoid windows until the danger was over. An emergency shelter has been arranged for residents displaced by the violence until the investigation is completed.
