Homicide

1 of 2 wounded suburban Denver officers released from hospital; suspect still being treated

One of two suburban Denver police officers shot over the weekend has been released from the hospital.

Lakewood police spokesman Steve Davis said Monday that the male officer is back at home. A female officer who was also wounded on Saturday night remained in stable condition at the hospital.

Police say they were shot by a man in his 50s described as despondent by his wife. They say officers went to his home to check on him and he immediately fired on them.

A third officer who arrived later returned fire and shot the unidentified suspect. The suspect remains hospitalized and will be arrested when he is released.

Police say bulletproof vests played a key role in saving the lives of the wounded officers.
