Not a ton of information available at this point. One person has died and the second was flown by Flight for Life to St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood. No identifying information has been provided at this point. The ParkCo coroner, as well as other investigators, are on scene.

No word on the other individual's condition at this point. In the meantime, I will do what I can to provide updates throughout the evening and tomorrow.

June 4, 2018

On June 3rd at approximately 4:30 pm, Park County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to Park County Road 70 near Echo Valley Ranch on a report of an attempted carjacking. The victim was able to get away and flag down an employee of the ranch. The employee of the ranch found the suspect and a violent confrontation took place. The ranch employee was stabbed several times and the suspect sustained at least one gunshot wound.

When PCSO deputies arrived, the suspect ran. Deputies were able to take the suspect into custody just before 5:00 pm. PCSO immediately requested EMS for the stabbing victim and the suspect. PCSO deputies attempted to control the bleeding from the gunshot wound sustained by the suspect, however he died before Platte Canyon Fire and Flight For Life arrived.

The deceased party is a juvenile male who resides in Jefferson County. His autopsy is being performed this morning in Colorado Springs. The last information on the stabbing victim was that he was in critical but stable condition at St. Anthony's Hospital in Lakewood.

No names are being released at this time.

This incident is being investigated by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation because the suspect technically died while in police custody.

It should be noted that no weapons were discharged by any member of law enforcement.
