Agent Michael Thomas was shot and killed by a suspect who
opened fire on him while he sat a traffic light at the
intersection of Peoria Street and Montview Boulevard.

Agent Thomas had just left a training session and was heading
to another session when the incident occurred.

The shooter was subdued by several passers-by and then
taken into custody by an Aurora police officer, and two Federal
Bureau of Prisons corrections officers who happened to be in
the area. The shooter was wanted in Denver for an
unprovoked shooting that had occurred the previous week.

The suspect was convicted of second degree murder and
sentenced to 80 years in prison on April 6, 2009.

Agent Thomas had served with the Aurora Police Department
for 24 years. He is survived by his daughter, mother, and
brother.

Mike,

Thought of you today...
You still cross my mind from time to time. I remember days spent in PAR briefings, your jokes, the pride as you spoke of your daughter, your plans for the future, and then that last day of Koga training. I don't get by here often, but you are not forgotten.
