The suspect fired more than 100 rounds in the shooting, according to authorities. He is now dead, according to authorities.  

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said via Twitter that the shooting happened after deputies were called to the scene of a domestic disturbance in Highlands Ridge early Sunday.

The shootings happened at an apartment complex 16 miles (28 kilometers) south of Denver.

The four other officers were in stable condition and injuries to the civilians were not life-threatening.
