Five deputies were shot and one killed after responding to a domestic disturbance call at an apartment complex south of Denver on Sunday morning, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said.

Two civilians were also shot, but their condition is unknown. Authorities have not yet disclosed the condition of the other officers who were shot.

The suspected gunman was shot by officers and is “no longer a threat,” the sheriff’s office said. The suspect is believed to be dead.

A SWAT team and bomb squad truck are reportedly on the scene.

Four people were taken to Littleton Adventist Hospital in relation to the shooting but their conditions have not been released, KUSA reported. Three were taken to Sky Ridge Medical Center in non-critical condition.

A reporter for a local Denver news outlet said she heard gunfire as she arrived at the scene. Authorities are asking people to avoid the area.

A representative for the apartment building, Copper Canyon Apartments, did not immediately respond to request for comment.
