A "good Samaritan" shot a man who ambushed and killed a Colorado police officer, likely saving other lives, only to be fatally shot himself by responding officers, officials confirmed Friday.

"We lost two heroes," Arvada Police Chief Link Strate said in a video message Friday, acknowledging that Johnny Hurley "undoubtedly saved many lives Monday afternoon" before he was shot and killed by a responding officer.

The video does not show the shooting, but police said Troyke then shot Beesley twice, killing the 19-year veteran.

"Gordon was targeted because he was wearing an Arvada police uniform and a badge," Strate said at a news conference on Tuesday. »
