Community Parole Officer Christine Guerin-Sandoval was struck and killed by a vehicle near the intersection of W Bijou Street and N Spruce Street while she and two other parole officers attempted to arrest a parolee.

They located the man inside a vehicle parked at a convenience store at the intersection at about 3:45 pm. As the officers approached the vehicle, the man intentionally reversed into them before fleeing the scene. Officer Guerin-Sandoval and one of the other officers were both struck. They were transported to UCHealth Memorial Hospital Central where Officer Guerin-Sandoval succumbed to her injuries.

The subject was arrested a short time later.

Officer Guerin-Sandoval had served with the Colorado Department of Corrections for five years and had previously served with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office for 12 years. She is survived by her husband, two children, her mother, two sisters, and a brother.

Lord God of unfailing love, to those families in our beloved nation, the United States of America, who are suffering in the wake of the loss of a law enforcement family member, help us to provide support. Allow us to be their rock and fortress in a time of immense pain and uncertainty. Help us to keep them safe and nourished in their time of grief, suffering beside them as we move toward healing and reconciliation. Lord God, in Your compassionate mercy, hear my prayer. In Christ Jesus, Your beloved Son, and by His authority, I pray. Amen.
