On Sunday, December 24 in Denver, Colorado, police officers responded to a call at the Copper Canyon Apartments at 5:14 a.m. Reports indicated a domestic disturbance in the Highlands Ranch area.
What may have seemed like a routine call ended in a bloodbath. The perpetrator ambushed the officers as they made their way into his apartment, reported The New York Post.
Sheriff’s Deputy Zachary Parish, a 29-year-old father of two, was killed. Four more were wounded.
“It was more of an ambush,” said Sheriff Tony Spurlock. The killer “knew we were coming, and we obviously let him know that we were there.”
A Colorado Chick-fil-A responded in a big way. They made a rare move of opening their store on Sunday, which normally would be a day of rest for the employees, and provided sandwiches for the officers.
“With heavy hearts and lots of community support three Douglas County, Jefferson County, and other County officers are helping with food 400 sandwiches for first responders. Our prayers are with all that serve and their families,” the restaurant, according to Digital Political News.
Chick-fil-A makes known its support for the law enforcement community. In Virginia, a store offered free meals to law enforcement officers on Christmas Eve, according to a local ABC station WSET. This was the third year they’ve done this.
