LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) - A Lakewood police agent, now identified as Ashley Ferris, who was shot in the line of duty during a deadly shooting spree had another surgery on Wednesday. Lakewood police officials say the female agent shot and killed the gunman, Lyndon McLeod, who ultimately killed five people.
Lakewood police say the agent, who has not been identified, is expected to make a full recovery.
The shootings began in Denver. Police there say those who want to help the victims, their families and survivors can donate to the Colorado Healing Fund.
The Hornet on South Broadway will also donate more than 50% of its proceeds to families impacted by the shootings at Sol Tribe Tattoo.
Lakewood police also announced they set up a community resource center to help anyone impacted by the tragedies. It will be located inside the Core Cycling and Wellness building across from the Hyatt House, at 7349 W. Alaska Drive.
The center will be open Thursday 9am-7pm and Friday 8am-12pm. Trauma resources and mental health therapists will be available to the public.
