Denver, CO - Authorities say deputies wounded in a barrage of gunfire inside a Denver area apartment were forced to give up on a slain colleague and crawl to safety.

Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock says three deputies and a police officer who were shot and injured in the Sunday morning shooting went down within seconds of each other.

He says they tried to pull 29-year-old Deputy Zackari Parrish, who had already been shot, out of the line of further gunfire but their own injuries hampered their efforts.

All five were investigating reports of a disturbance around 5:15 a.m. at the home, which had been the subject of a noise complaint four hours earlier.

Spurlock says the suspect was killed but did not identify him.
