Denver officer shot in the leg; police search for shooter
DENVER (AP) — A Denver officer has been shot in the leg and police are looking for the shooter.
Division Chief Ron Thomas told reporters early Sunday that officers responded to a home on a report of a person on a porch who did not belong there.
The shooter opened fire on the officers and one officer was shot in the leg. The officer was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Thomas says officers have made contact with multiple “individuals of interest,” but the investigation is ongoing.
The area has reopened to the public after a search involving police dogs.
