Ambush Shooting on Denver Police Officer Captured by Security Camera

Ambush Shooting on Denver Police Officer Captured by Security Camera

In two separate incidents that occurred on the same day last week, two Denver police officers were shot and injured. Denver police released video of those incidents on Wednesday.

At a news conference held on Wednesday at the Denver Police Department’s headquarters, officials revealed that both officers were shot at by suspects and that both of them returned fire.

Police Chief Ron Thomas, who has been with the agency for 34 years, said he couldn’t recall ever seeing two officers get shot separately on the same day.

“The challenge we face here in Denver is there are too many guns out in our community and we have individuals who feel emboldened to use them,” Thomas said. “It’s a challenge.”

Because of the bulletproof vests they were wearing for protection, both officers most likely survived. Although not required by the department, “vests are strongly encouraged” and the vast majority of officers wear them, Thomas said.
