SWAT officer wounded in shootout, suspect dead 

An early morning shootout off Colorado 94 near Corral Valley during what appeared to be a robbery at an illegal marijuana grow resulted in one person dying and another being wounded, the Gazette reports.

Later that day, Colorado Springs Police and the El Paso County Sheriff's Department SWAT team confronted the suspect from the earlier shooting, leading to another gunfight that resulted in the suspect being killed and a SWAT officer being wounded, according to a social media post from CSPD. The Gazette reports that SWAT Deputy Jeremy Juhl was wounded in the latter fight, which took place at the 19000 block of Loop Road in southeast El Paso County. He was treated and released from the hospital July 22.

Authorities haven't released the name of the dead or wounded suspects.
