6:16 pm
now is that i ask the community two things. one that you pray for my officer and i'm going to share his name in a moment and the power of prayer is important and i think it can help him. he is in critical condition and we need to do whatever we can. also the city of parker is great in helping us in this investigation. the city of parker is pretty much a gridlock in traffic so there is -- you don't need to come down to this part of the city of parker. roads are very clogged and there is a lot of problems with folks trying to get the kids out of school and moving around on a friday night. thank you very much for that. the detective that was shot and injured is detective dan bright. he has been with our office for two-and-a-half years. he is married to one of our
6:17 pm
unit of the sheriff's office. they are together at the hospital. and her children, their children together are there with family members, other family members are on their way to the location but they have all been notified. so i do ask again that you have thoughts and prayers for detective bright and his family and we will continue on with the investigation. we ve investigations going on, two separate shootings. and with the assistance of the colorado state patrol, parker police department and the district attorney's office, we sure feel that we will come to the conclusion of that and the most important part for me right now is that detective bright comes out of this okay and we can get him home with his family. i'll answer just a couple questions.
