One police deputy and a gunman have been killed following a shooting in a residential area south of Denver on Sunday that also left four other deputies and two civilians with gunshot wounds, authorities said. 

The Douglas County sheriff’s office said officers responded to a call for a domestic disturbance in an apartment complex in the early-morning hours. While they were investigating, shots were fired. 

Police had issued a “code red” for the county, asking residents to take shelter inside their homes, and a SWAT team was called to the scene.
