Douglas County, CO — In what is being referred to as an “ambush style” attack, a Colorado deputy was tragically killed New Year’s Eve by a delusional gunman. Although the attack was called an ‘ambush’ in the media, the shooter, Matthew Riehl live-streamed the attack before which he is heard telling deputies to go away.

Late Sunday afternoon the deputy who lost his life was identified as 29-year-old Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Zackari Parrish. He was described as a veteran law enforcement officer, and leaves behind a wife and two children. Along with Parrish, four other deputies were shot, as well as two civilians.

The incident began early Sunday morning when deputies showed up to Riehl’s apartment to talk about a restraining order he wished to file against his domestic partner.

Instead of ambushing the officers, Riehl refused to cooperate with them, did not answer their questions and demanded to see a warrant when they asked to come inside. After Riehl refused to let them in, he then shut the door after telling them he was going to bed.

The deputies then left only to return a short time later. According to Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock, this time, officers were let into the apartment by Riehl’s roommate. When they attempted to enter Riehl’s bedroom, he then opened fire.

In the video, which was live-streamed to Periscope, multiple shots can be heard being fired from a high-powered rifle. It was this initial barrage that wounded three deputies and killed another.

Although the video was taken down by Periscope at the request of the Sheriff’s department, a brief excerpt of the audio remains to show the intense nature of the confrontation and the psychotic nature of Reihl.

Gephardt Daily managed to obtain the entire stream which shows the lead-up to the attack, as well the shooting itself.

According to their report, while the live stream played out on the Internet, the gunman continued to rant before approaching the gravely wounded deputy and shooting him multiple times at point-blank range.

Moments later, he rummaged through the downed deputy’s pockets, saying that he was looking for a search warrant.

“There’s no warrant,” he exclaimed. “It’s illegal search and seizure! This is a classic courtroom defense!”

Riehl then shot the deputy again.

In the video, Riehl is then seen putting on a gas mask as he appears to wait for more officers to show up. Throughout the morning, Riehl fired more shots until he was ultimately shot and killed by police.

NBC Denver’s Kyle Clark reports that Riehl did a tour of Iraq in 2009 until 2010. In 2012, Riehl was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army reserve after joining in 2003. Clark later reported that while in Iraq, Riehl’s duty was mainly in security.

Riehl operated a Facebook page and a YouTube channel on which he was outspoken against the police department and is seen in a collection of eery rants.


After the release of the Periscope video, many have taken to social media to question the officers’ response to the situation. Had they gotten an actual warrant instead of simply walking into the apartment, many are saying that it could’ve resulted in a different outcome in which the 29-year-old father of two would still be alive.

Below is the audio from the Periscope live stream. It contains graphic audio and may be disturbing to some listeners.

There is the short audio they released.

This website has the full video (not releasing it as of now) and gives a little more detailed account of some of the stuff in the video.

So they didn't have a warrant?  

That's obviously a tragedy either way.

It sounds like his roommate let them in because he was having a mental breakdown.

So the entered this guys house without a warrant and then when he defended himself they murdered him.

Warrant for what exactly? Aren’t you supposed to be an attorney?

Generally the police need a warrant to enter a home absent exigent circumstances.  Need to know more about what happened but it doesn't sound great.  He told them he didn't want to talk to them and to leave unless they had a warrant.  They did... then came back and got the roomate to consent to entry.  The roomate can't consent to his room though and he was still telling them to leave.  Perhaps if they had no one would have been killed. 


The whole thing sucks.

He wasn't defending himself he was murdering cops.

Good post. 

Obviously having a mental breakdown. Warrant or not. 

Damn.

It does suck.

Both links say that the cops showed up initially to talk to him about a restraining order he wanted to file.

The original reports were that they were responding to a domestic disturbance at 5am.

Maybe he got into a fight with someone(domestic partner?) at 5am and they came back a few hours later to talk to him about it?

That video will be interesting if it ever comes out. The audio is crazy from both sides.

Guy was probably a lunatic but this was poorly handled by the police.

Timeline of Events

3 a.m: Douglas County dispatch received a call reporting a verbal disturbance at the Copper Canyon apartments. Deputies responded to the scene and spoke with two men. One man claimed the other, Matthew Riehl, was acting strangely and seemed to be having a mental breakdown.

3:44 a.m.: Deputies left the apartment when they could find no evidence that a crime had been committed.

5:14 a.m.: Deputies were called back to the scene.

5:17 a.m.: The first deputy arrived at the apartment complex.

5:35 a.m.: Three additional deputies arrived at the apartment complex. They were given the keys to Riehl’s apartment and given permission to enter.

5:56 a.m.: Riehl opened fire with a rifle after barricading himself inside his bedroom, hitting all four deputies. Officers returned backed out of the apartment. However, Deputy Parrish was not able to retreat. He had been hit multiple times and stopped responding to radio calls. He passed away. Deputies Michael Doyle, Taylor Davis, and Jeffrey Pelle were also shot.

7:30 a.m.: SWAT entered the apartment and exchanged fire with Riehl. Officer Thomas O’Donnell was shot. The suspect was killed.

That timeline leaves out some crucial details.

 

Unfortunate all around. Obviously the roommate was worried about himself and the shooter.

Thanks for the timeline.

Curious why the site that has the video says they came to talk to him about a restraining order he wanted to file. Was it against the roommate? Was someone else there at 3am?
