Sheriff Deputy Micah Flick Funeral

El Paso County Sheriff’s Deputy Micah Flick was fatally shot last week in a gun battle during an attempted auto-theft arrest in the parking lot of an east Colorado Springs apartment complex. Two sheriff’s deputies, a police detective and a passer-by were also injured. Flick is the third officer killed within five weeks.

A public funeral procession showed an outpouring of support to honor his life. The Denver Post was not assigned as the pool publication for the ceremony so I was not allowed in the church, but I attempted to capture images that conveyed what Flick’s life meant to the force and the community.
