Authorities say a gunman is believed to have shot and killed an officer and another person in a shopping district in a Denver suburb before being fatally shot by police. Police say an officer responded to a call about a suspicious incident Monday near the library in the city of Arvada, and about 15 minutes later, a 911 call came in about shots fired and the officer hit. Authorities say a person who was believed to have been shot by the gunman was taken to a hospital and died. The attacker also was shot and killed. Officials didn’t describe the circumstances of the shooting in the city about 7 miles northwest of Denver.
