Sergeant David Kinterknecht was shot and killed after responding to a domestic violence call.

The sergeant, along with officers from the Montrose Police Department and deputies from the Montrose County Sheriff's Department were dispatched to a home in the 16900 block of 64.50 Road, at 8:30 p.m., after a report of domestic violence. As the complainant was speaking to the officers, the suspect opened fire with a shotgun from a garage adjacent to the house. Sergeant Kinterknecht was struck in the chest in a location not protected by his vest.

Two other officers were also shot and wounded. The suspect then committed suicide.
