Jay William Sheridan

Officer Jay Sheridan was shot and killed as he and other officers served a fugitive arrest warrant at approximately 6:10 pm.

As the officers entered the mobile home where the subject lived, the man opened fire on them, fatally wounding Officer Sheridan. Two other officers on the scene remained in another room in the home and called for assistance.

The subject was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound later in the evening after a SWAT team made entry into the home.

Officer Sheridan had served with the Limon Police Department for six years. He is survived by his wife and child.
