DENVER (AP) -- Denver police are investigating reports that a deputy sheriff has been wounded near the downtown area.
The Denver Police Department says that two sheriff's deputies were serving an arrest warrant at a home when a woman came to the door with a gun. She shot one deputy in the hand, and the other deputy returned fire.
The suspect was pronounced dead on the scene.

Two children were also taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure since they were near the scene.
