2 police officers shot near Denver; suspect held

DENVER – Authorities say two police officers in suburban Denver were shot and wounded as they tried check on the welfare of a man.

The Lakewood Police Department dispatch office says that the officers were shot Saturday night and the suspected shooter is in custody.

Lakewood police spokesman Steve Davis tells station KUSA that the officers’ injuries aren’t life-threatening, thanks in part to their bullet-proof vests.

He says that 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.

Davis says the suspect was also wounded, but didn’t elaborate.

No other details were immediately available.

The violence in Lakewood, a few miles to the west of downtown Denver, occurred near the intersection of West Jewell Avenue and South Kipling Street.
