Two Cops Shot While Checking On Man’s Well-Being
The police were asked to check up on the Denver man by a friend, and they were met with bullets.
The Lakewood Police Department dispatch office said the officers were shot Saturday night and the suspected shooter is in custody.
Lakewood police spokesman Steve Davis told station KUSA that the officers’ injuries aren’t life-threatening, thanks in part to their bullet-proof vests.
He said the officers were trying to check on the man at the request of a woman. When they arrived at the residence, the man came outside and started shooting.
