Three deputies were shot, one was killed, while serving an eviction notice in Bailey on Wednesday morning.
“It is a dark day,” Susan Medina, spokeswoman for the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, said.
The man at the home at 36 Iris Drive, Martin Wirth, was armed with a rifle and opened fire on the deputies, according to Medina.
Wirth was shot and killed by deputies returning fire. Wirth has previously run for office and had been fighting foreclosure for years.
